(Sorry it took a while to respond...working on 1.6 release stuff.)

Bert did say he had a patch, and I also would be interested in seeing
it. However, this late in the 1.6 release cycle, somebody could swoop
in with a feature which made Subversion use 90% less disk, run 10
times faster, and boost your bank account by $10 million, and the
developers still wouldn't accept it. As developers, I'm sure most of
us here understand the rationale behind such behavior. In this
circumstance, it's really just a case of unfortunate timing.

The same problem which Bert claims to fix in his patch will be fixed
to a greater degree in a more robust way as part of WC-NG, due in
1.7. It's *that* work for which I'd welcome patches (and testers, and
early adopters, etc).
