I'm ok with that, as long as no one else can get to it. The
intellectual "secrets" are more important than giving it up. It
would only set me back a couple of months to recreate the source, vs
giving it to someone openly. And again, again, again, I couldn't
care less about root. If SVN encrypts it's internal processes with
random session keys it doesn't matter what level of permissions you
have; encryption is encryption.
