An aside r.e. subversion;

Just please don't do what gstein has warned us against. I've performed
the ill-advised jump-over abandoned work in the past;
   svn rm ^/httpd/mod_foo/trunk
   svn cp ^/httpd/mod_foo/trunk@123456 ^/httpd/mod_foo/trunk
attempting to drop activity between 123457 and present. Greg advised
us this turns out to do some ugly rebasing leaving a very ugly mess of
records in the underlying database. Anyone from subversion team could
give a better explanation why this is badness. This might look like
a reversion, but don't do this.
