John -

First off, thank you, it's good to feel appreciated. :-)

I had been thinking replacement, since having multiple copies floating
around can be confusing. I tried to stay as true to the original as
possible, and actually simplified a few things. Basically, the only
things I added to the XSL was functionality to print the path with
links to each directory, and that all comes at the end of the file.
Where it differs most is that the CSS is a bit more fancy, and I
figured that's where Subversion administrators are least likely to
spend their time.

Also, in contrast with the other tools that have been mentioned, this
approach doesn't require any extra setup or modifying the filesó
they're just drop-in replacements for the defaults. (You do need to
add the folder for images, however.) My stylesheet is intended to stay
true to the simplicity of XSL output, with minimal processing
overhead, and accordingly minimal functionality. ;-)
