This, to my mind, is a nutshell explanation of why SVN is so good:
because it is well-designed. Keep up the good work.

I would also echo the statement earlier, "TSVN is fantastic." Yes! A
wonderful tool. Even the CEO of the publishing company I work for uses
it frequently with no hiccups. TSVN does an amazing job of making a
rather sophisticated software system transparently easy to use for
people who have no technical knowledge of computers at all.
