In my setup, the share is itself a subversion working copy.  At the
end of the day, I have a script commit the changes.  My need is only
for an easy backup of the day's work.  I don't have to negotiate
between changes by multiple users on the same file.

I'll probably work my setup into a proper VFS module at some point,
but I don't think it would do what the original poster wanted -- i.e.
make backup copies when users save the file.  I'm not sure how you
could sanely negotiate merges from all those backups anyway, but maybe
there's a way.

Have you ever stood and stared at it? Marveled at its beauty? Its genius?
Billions of people just living out their lives, oblivious.
