Though if suggestions of being able to avoid diffing for certain
mime-types (EG binary types such as archives that rarely produce
useful diff results) are accepted and implemented then those types
wouldn't benefit from a pristine copy and should probably just store
size & date information in the SVN area.

I agree though that the challenge is finding people with the time and
ability to implement the changes who are also motivated to work on
this issue amongst the many others.
