I'll note that in my environment, the reverse is true. Managed,
centrally managed, backed up disk space is cheap but not infinitely so
(and it gets annoying when one wants to use it in large chunks), and
bandwidth within the organization is "infinitely cheap" in the sense
that CVS has never used a significant fraction of it.

Certainly, I don't plan to actually use Subversion for my job until
there's an option to skip text-base. Even a half-assed option which
would just disable "svn commit" and (some features of) "svn diff"
would probably be enough; my concern is related to doubling the size
of reference checkouts.
