I'm all for switching, if it doesn't inconvenience anyone.

Some people might have a whole bunch of changes in their working tree 
that haven't been checked in yet.

That might be possible, I see a howto here:


I've been using svn for my own personal repository of stuff for about 2 
years, and I've been quite happy with it.

It would take some time to prototype this, but I'm willing to do the 
work.  I think I'd like to set up a single-purpose Xen session on my new 
server to host it.

In particular, it would be nice to get rid of the cvs2ps-based email 
script I made, since that's pretty buggy and incomplete.  :-)
