svn filesystem without Berkeley DBM?

I've several times heard the claim that the svn filesystem is an
interface layer that could be implemented using for example a relational
database or any other storage system.

Why was Berkeley DBM choosen? Why not use regular files? The later seems
much easier to maintain using regular tools, and possibly more
robust(?). Or does Berkeley DBM provides some features that simplifies
the implementation?
