The Subversion working copy library is by far the most complex part of
Subversion.  The data model used to describe this complexity is highly
relational. Do you have any proposals to make it simpler?  Please note that
it took a lot of energy and time to change the original ideas from WC NG
into an actual working library - even from some of the developers most
familiar with the code base.

What would irritate you about that?
