And, given hardware failure (RAM chips?) how do you determine
consistency? Subversion provides tools to asses
consistency/correctness and prevents getting into an inconsistent
state under 'normal operation', but you can't expect it to be able to
recover from situations which aren't predefined, right?

Or would 'cutting the repository off at the last valid revision' also
match your requirement? (it sure doesn't sound like any help to me!)

Erik.
