Re: Bug#507742: etcinsvk: initial run is excruciatingly slow

I tested it, and etckeeper seem to be interactive, asking the user for
comments when packages is upgraded/installed.  etcinsvk is not
interactive, and only record changes.

I did ask for svk support in etckeeper to be able to migrate to it,
but do not believe anyone implemented it yet.  After testing
etckeeper, I am not sure we want to.

We use svk because it allow us to keep /etc/ in version control
without any files showing up in /etc/ to indicate that it is being
done, and thus no confusion about for example .svn files in /etc/ will
arrive. :)

Happy hacking,
