I guess it wouldn't cause too much problems committing it to trunk  
since we could
always revert to the base revision if something goes wrong. The real  
question is:
Do we have/need a SVN policy? How would it look like?

Wherever I've worked with version control before there always were  
rules like:
"Never break the build in trunk" or
"Only unit-tested code goes to trunk"
and similar. I just wanted to ask before I do something wrong...

Cheers, David.
