Why a merkle tree? One of Subversion's strengths is its linear revision
history. You could use blockchain and get financial strength audit ability.

Blockchain is so over sold. There's a whole class of application where the
bastard child of Git and Subversion would be a perfect non-repudiable and
tamper evident store. Ones where distributed consensus that's vulnerable to
51% attacks isn't actually needed.
