Good evening, Ryan.

Yes, I understand that. But, if the current revision of the SRS is 4.3 (as
recorded in the change log on the back page of the document), and someone
comes to me and tells me that he needs revision 4.1 and wants to know how
he can check it out, what do I tell him if the whole repository is at
revision 17?

This is aside from the issue about if he wants the SRS he'll have to check
out everything else in that repository directory including stuff he doesn't
care about.

(I suggested that the only real "fix", in that case, would be to put each
file into its own repository and I thought I was going to be lynched...) :-(
