Interesting.  I haven't had the opportunity to play with Frame and dav, 
but I assumed that Frame would require a locking rather than a merging 
version system.  I think that we will end up doing just what you said.

Another idea: when Frame checks a document in, use fmbatch on a Solaris 
box to convert the document to MIF.  When frame checks it out, convert 
back to FM format.  Does anybody know of any sample svn hook scripts to 
accomplish this?  (Wrong list, sorry)
