Let me make a plug for FSFS sharding. System administrators are also
a kind of user. A better title might be "improved large deployment
support".

The FSFS sharding makes repositories with millions of revision practical.

I would add in the fact that transactions can now be built up on local
disk. This helps multiple svn servers share a NFS repository for
improved scalability.

These are kind of subtle things that are probably very
under-documented right now.

It occurs that I know a good bit about this feature and should help
work on docs. Where is this kind of thing documented? Is the
submittion process the same as code?
