indeed. i was hoping that the frequency would be reduced by only storing 
approved versions in SVN.

doug chestnut is working on WebDAV integration right now, which might 
help with this. as a start, people could do their docs offline, and then 
  add them to lenya through webdav. lenya then takes care of checking 
them in to the lenya revision control, doing workflow initialization, 
and whatever else is required to make a document editable in lenya.

this wouldn't solve checking into SVN yet, but it might be a reasonable 
start. at least you could edit docs offline with your favorite tools.
