Okay, then I don't see what makes AccuRev's model so different.
Perhaps it's just a rehash of one of the older debates (where folks
were essentially debating whether a line is a set of points or a
solution of an equation).

Aegis was actually different: in general, your working copy (which is
not really yours alone) immediately reflects changes as they are
integrated into the base branch. (Local changes to updated files
prevent this immediate visibility.)
