Tinderbox is a really cool tool, although it can be hard to set up.

The basic idea is that it continously runs the build (+ optional tests)
on a number of different platforms, so that you can see where the build
is broken, and where the tests are failing. Then you get a nice graphic
showing the builds that are succeding, failing, failing tests, etc. You
can also see who committed things that broke the builds, but that
requires integration with cvs, that would have to be reimplmented for
svn.

All in all, you get lots of nice info on the status of your code.

The other big advantage is that big projects aren't going to use svn
unless it can integrate with tinderbox, and associated tools. So doing
the work for svn is a good way to start on this.
