  Behind a WebDAV folder via Apache, you can choose to have or not to
have subversion.  Yes, because these are binary files, versioning is a
bit costly (though 1GB disk space is a dollar is you can store 1000's
of projects).

  By default, uploading from Etoys just keep all the older version.
It is conceivable to use the same name (by removing the serial number)
and over write older version.
