Good afternoon, Ben.

His answer to that would be to equate Subversion to the screwdriver,
and VSS to the hammer, and say that obviously we're using the wrong
tool (the screwdriver) and the only viable solution is to immediately
convert everything over to the right tool (the hammer).

each of these precious files in its own directory....?<<<<<

I didn't try it, but I did consider it and decided rather quickly
that it was way too extreme a solution even for me. :-)
