Subject: Re: [chairs] need more input for DocMgmt system

If client-side is required, is there any reason it can not be embedded in web pages as script rather than a binary download that must be installed? If such embedding is done by reference, even a large set of script ends up being downloaded once and cached.

I'm using subversion, and I can see ways of working with it without
playing with annoying plugins.

What do you need to do that requires a browser plugin?
