Another thing to bear in mind is that for Subversion to gain acceptance
as a decent version control tool it kind of needs to "behave itself" out
of the box (in as much as that's possible). It might be a problem if
people heard stories about it eating disk space, although eating data is
obviously worse. Similarly with the deltification -- it would be best
all round if Subversion configured deltification automatically, somehow.

Having said that, actual performance and usability of source control is
rarely a deciding factor (in my experience) for source control
selection. It's much more to do with what someone picked 12 years ago
when Windows 3.1 was all the rage. *sigh*

Mike.
