I've certainly come to expect to have to do serious work where subversion is concerned. Now if someone could tell me (and the original poster) precisely the form of this 'major effort', I'm certainly prepared to undertake it - I've got to.

Please take it as read that I had a good reason to reorg 200 files on a branch. I won't go into details, but it was necessary.

Also, please don't take this post negatively. I'm using your software for free with no contribution, so I am definitely very grateful. You're doing a good job, but please sort this issue out!

James
