It's not fully functional yet, as I ran into a major road blocks, but if
it's important enough, maybe you cold help improve it.

The main problem was the use of temporary files for copy/rename, which
doesn't work right now.

If I wanted to push this more ahead, I'd probably have to no longer use the
FS functionality and instead write a core SVN driver a the SQL/FS level.

Unfortunately, haven't had time to look into that :(

Subject: [Ape] .svn files causing problems


I'm trying to use APE with subversion, but the .svn directories are
causing problems upon startup. 

line 270, in write_directory
    raise FSWriteError(
apelib.fs.interfaces.FSWriteError: Not a legal object name: ''

I remove all .svn directories and it starts up with no problems.

I've looked through docs & searched for some way to provide an 'ignore
list' - is there any way to tell ape to filter out these files so that I
can run svn and keep APE happy? - or is there some way to set up a
'null' mapper?
