	Yes, less is good.

	It seems that the general way to do this is to git-svn clone the tree  
and build a local branch of binary and commit your patches there.  If  
you can do that and share the tree, that'd be a great start.

	Of course, I don't think we're in the market for a new protocol, but  
it sounds like you're doing some further decoupling than I've done and  
will likely get the codebase cleaner.

	Excellent.  This is much needed.
