My impression of depot is that it was more targeted at repository handling
for build systems (like ant and maven) rather than providing a generic
repository API.  That is, I see avalon-repository sitting along side
depot-update and depot-version rather than replacing them.  But perhaps I
don't understand their code enough yet.

However, I think Avalon repository is a gem of software utility and I would
love it if there were more collaboration between these apps and also more
general knowledge about them.
