I'm getting (more?) confused now. I thought that the approach Andrew
brought up of the svn copy, followed by modifying the beta bit in that
branch would leave a svn history with a unique svn revision number. I
was assuming the flip the bit was committed back to the branch.
Or is a copy not a branch?
