     OK, waiting impatiently for that version. :)

     If you read the other replies from that gist (or whatever you
call it), he implies that there's no compression in SVN/Subversion.

     I HAD DONE my research prior to ask the question, but it's
impossible to "demonstrate" that fact. I had searched through a lot
of docs. If he could plug into my mind, I could show that moron how
much time I had spent on this matter.
