We are switching to Subversion from Perforce at work. It has not gone 
well :-}
Basically, Subversion had performance problems (possibly related to 
dbxml), and
landed me in trouble (long story). We hope that new releases will have 
fixed the problems this week.

but we dont have a choice, do we? unless CVR wants to run a Subversion 
sevice on Sarovar.
