[Buildbot-devel] split_file for SVNCommitEmailMaildirSource

Hi all,

I am attempting to move from SVNPoller to a maildir-based change  
source, and it looks like 0.7.12 lumps all the changes into the trunk  
(instead of identifying branches). What I really want to do is just  
use my same split_file function from SVNPoller on the MaildirSource.

It doesn't look too hard to graft the split_file functionality onto  
SVNCommitEmailMaildirSource (famous last words...), but is this  
something that should maybe exist at a more abstract level? (e.g. as a  
method in the Changes class)

I know that CVS and Git both separate the file namespace from the tag/ 
branch namespace, but how common is this with other revision control  
systems? Is it worth putting this in a central location?
