Sorry, Daniel.  I got crazy busy just after we traded these mails and
never got back to completing this task. In r4528, I reworked your
sidebar as a <warning> and decided to put it in the section which
introduces Subversion repositories.  After all, if someone is under the
mistaken impression that the client-side thing is called a repository,
it seems to me that would be topic they'd be more likely to research in
the book first.
