Indeed, I agree that these two cases should ideally be handled in the
same way... so (forgive me if I'm wrong here), is it true that we have
two types of data?

1) The ignore lists and similar
You'd probably almost always want this to be in the repository (even
when not versioning /etc but some other directory)? Can it be stored in
a svn property or special file?

2) The working copy 'state', url, revisions
As long as you have a working system I can't think of any reason yet
that this could not go into /var and also be completely ignored in the
commits. Is the reason we'd want to commit this so that you can restore
onto a clean system? Or am I not seeing it correctly?

Bye,
