Just because there are use cases that you can see that it doesn't
cover doesn't mean it's not useful for someone. In this particular
case it's like complaining that a bicycle isn't very useful in getting
across the Atlantic and using that as an argument that nobody should
make bicycles.

I'm not going to bother responding to this thread further. It really
has no place on the dev_at_subversion.apache.org or
users_at_subversion.apache.org list as Brane has wisely pointed out.
