Repeatedly.   Probably you can find old list threads if you look hard

You could use some existing system -- or you could even (fairly
easily) roll your own that is optimized for this extremely limited
domain of application.

The problem is that you'd lose the "regular tree" nature of revlibs.
For example, how is diff going to compare two files in this revlib
tree?  The problem has plenty 'o solutions -- just pointing out that
you would need to provide one.

So you can go nuts lots of ways coding such stuff up and for some
people, it might still be worth playing around with.

Or, you can buy some disk space and work on something else instead.
