good point, just because hasn't been doesn't mean it can't ;-)

although i wonder if there is some hand waving in progress here that i
can't see. i guess my semantic notion of versions has been that of long
lived transactions, and is there a better means of thinking of them? how
do they play across with multiple mounted zodbs? what would something
like merge mean in the context of a catalog?

i was more curious how jean-francois was doing the svn ops in fileops,
as svn is fundamentally a transactional store (as opposed to the fs), ie
is there some record boundary notion of ape signalling the end of
serialization for an object set, or was each operation being conducted
in a separate svn transaction.
