I'm not sure I'm following, as I'm not really sure how the
method really differs. The moz files, for instance, are already
versioned. Putting them in a versioned directory seems redundant.

As far as SVN control, I don't understand why we need this either.
It's not that I'm not in agreement, what I mean is I don't understand
what your intentions are, and why we need this (extra work).

Regardless, before (or as soon as) anything is implemented it must
be described in detail (step by step) in the Editor's Guide.
