update, yes. history, no, use bk/web. diffs, no, use bk/web or bk. building
it is certainly possible and you could do it yourself. We already built the
cvs exporter which is a lot nicer than what you are asking for and building
another thing for another 6 users seems pointless. If you want to pay for the
