Re: grave error in documentation

My understanding is that a file is only stored in the last revision
it was changed for. If the file has not been modified since rev 2, it
would not exist in revision 807 but would be carried forward as
unchanged since 2.

This is the same concept behind the fact that we have to back up
*every* revision file, and not just the most recent ones, if we want
to be able to have a backup that will work.
