You are writing the features of svk. svn is betweek svk (offline) and
cvs (online). svk can do offline commit and log (whole repository is
stored locally, for me it's smaller than the local copy because of the

Nice development workflow is that you keep commits small (at least on
your branch). If you do that then your history is really useful so you
can will use the offline log/diff too. For that you need frequent

However svn is more stable than svk and has a lot of advantages to cvs
besides partial offline mode so I think optionally getting rid of
pristine copies is a good feature request. One more reason can be that
you might not like to have the .svn subdirectories in your tree even if
you have a lot of space (like fsvs or svk). If the pristine copies are
outside of the tree then it could be a network mount, so it solves the
small HDD problem as well is you have giant network storage (ugly).
