svk is crap though. ;)

And presumably doing a full checkout of a package's history from a 
subversion server is far more resource-intensive on the server side than 
doing the same thing with git. For example, I maintain a git-svn checkout 
of the Django web framework. Checking out all ~6100 revisions takes about 
five hours, whereas cloning the git mirror of the project from 
takes just 27 seconds.
