It's also easily done in the Perforce repository[1] that Perl uses (since
changes are global), but I look forward to the day in the hopefully near future
when Perl moves from Perforce to Subversion for good. That is waiting on an
improved method of converting the Perforce history; VCP just isn't cutting it
and I just started looking at p42svn, which looks like it might need some
additional work to convert everything in the repository (I may not be able to do
labels for example).

1) or rather the patch files that are automatically created when changes are
made, since the Perforce repository itself is not publically available
