2. What I was thinking there is to rewrite as much of our libs as needed 
to implement deeply integrated local branching in Svn client. The full 
extent of what that might entail or look like is unknown.

3. To store a series of checkpoints, create a temporary repos inside 
.svn/ and "relocate" the WC base to it. Then use it for all operations 
until the user comes to the point they want to commit to the real repo.

Yes, I should note that mode of working as well. Thanks.
