Just having an idea about this...are there any files in the source tree that exceed 32kbytes?

What if a database solution were created to:
Contain every version of every file of every branch in a nicely indexed database table
The md5/sha256 of each entry mentioned above
512 byte chunks of each file mentioned above in a nicely indexed table
The md5/sha256 of every 512 bytes of the above mentioned file.

uh-ah. i guess that's for checkout, but still it seems very wrong. I mean, really. Uh, I can't stop shuddering. I just hope you are not serious :)

and the database will be really huge...

actually, it sounds like git, just worse.

File checkins could simply be a file upload, or a mime encoded fetch request, or an email message, or an ftp drop, or an scp copy, or an rsync push...

file checkins right now are cvs checkins, and I guess that will stay for some time.
