The things you find yourself considering from time to time…

As seen on #svn, when someone asked if it would be possible to use in-browser JavaScript to commit to a Subversion repository:

< Rytmis> Well if you can get the browser to speak WebDAV, it might
 technically be possible.
< Rytmis> You're going to have to do a *lot* of stuff by hand, 
 though :)
< Rytmis> See how the svn client library talks to a http/https 
 repository and duplicate that as XHRs :P
< Rytmis> Writing a svn client in in-browser javascript strikes me 
 as mildly insane, but who am I to judge :)

The best part of course being that I actually went through the steps of implementing just that in my head.
