Hello !

> But what exactly would you add or change in Subversion?

I would like to have a svn:keywordseverytime for example.
Every file that has this property set, will always be updated
when there is a change in the repository, even when the file itself
is not changed. So for example an $Id$ or
$Revision$ in it, will always be up to date. I would call it then
not $Revision$, but something like $BiggestRevision$ or so.

This is a problem on Windows a programm may use an external SVN somewhere
or maybe use the SVN functionality built right into it. You simply cannot be sure.
