The Subversion source code repository is BDB-backed (BDB 4.2). If
that's cool with you, I can make it available for download. I can go
with db_dump or "svnadmin dump" formats too, if you prefer, though it'll
take some time to generate. Hit me at the contact address listed on
http://svn.collab.net/ to take me up on this.
