SVN integration sounds like a nice project indeed.  I definitely like
the idea of making open source part of university course work, and maybe
we could even turn this into a Google Summer of Code project for next
year :-)

Nicolas, perhaps you have some ideas on how we could make this work as a
project?  Maybe think about how to make this 'telescoping' with some
modest objectives followed by more ambitious ones?

It looks like ConflictMarking was a request for a  future page, and IsEq
was just an accident of camelcasing (we used to use MoinMoin as our
wiki).  I'll get rid of the IsEq link.
