Okay, that's good to know.

What is the new rule? If the revlib is non-sparse, under which
circumstances will the the parent revision be built, and under which
circumstances will the cachedrev be used instead (breaking hardlinks)?

Anyway, that's probably not going to make a big difference on the revlib

According to what I was able to extract from Rob, that's already
essentially done, and more. But he feels like he needs a bigger critical
mass of actual features before making a public release. Or maybe he was
just pulling my leg.

Maybe with your help, we can be toghether enough of a PITA so that he
will release his stuff ;)

Yes, I want my new toy!
