Thanks for the pointer on the weblink.Agreed, that it is a step
backwards - but for the reason of speed. For some reason, every
command that works on http:// is much much slower than the
corresponding command run on file:/// . Even a simple command like svn
list http:// displays results in jolts and breaks instead of the
file:// method of access. If there is something I am missing about it,
could you please point it out?
