I believe 'silver' was created from "scratch", so has not ancestry in
common with any other branch in the repository -- if my understand of
your famous picture is correct.  It effectively is a
"repository" within the repository  -- essentially, files are
_duplicated_ as opposed to being shared.  For me, that explains the
sudden surge.

Yep, that would explain it.  Branches are supposed to be cheap copies;
they're just a hardlink within the repository, so they're nearly
instantaneous to create and take essentially zero space when they're
first made.  I don't know what you did on sourceforge, but it sure
wasn't a normal subversion branch!

I can reset the google repository to revision 0 if you'd like.
