Thanks for your patience.
We decided to test another, unorthodox method.
When something is approved we add an -approved suffix.
Ie: svn mv test.odf test-approved.odf
I can easily prohibit modification to approved documents in the
pre-commit. And an approved document will be seen as approved no
matter how it is copied in the structure.
And when updetes are needed we'll start with renaming the document again.
Do you expect me to get in trouble due to this solution?
Is this dangerous now, but will be safe in the 1.5 release (I've read
about better rename handling)
