Mine too, or plain binary 'as is'

for file versioning.

Mine: Only current version is stored on the client. Works out if 'clash' is
about to happen.

Yup, though I'll have a tray piece in time like
https://www.sparkleshare.org/ and DropBox.

JSON.

I've metadata stored client side in JSON too.

> * Atomic file system operations through journaling.

I've no server side beyond Subversion.

* Supports partial checkouts

Got that too :)

For your README, you'd be better to move the rationale to a separate page,
