Careful... subversion isn't claiming to be the "definitive deltaV
implementation", either client or server. The deltaV SCM model
doesn't perfectly match the Subversion or CVS model; Greg Stein has
therefore been very carefully implementing a specific subset of
deltaV. In the long run, this subset will grow, and Subversion's
client and server will become more and more compatible with other
implementations.

Be sure to read Greg's description of exactly how he's using deltaV.
It's in the "Docs" tab of the subversion website:
