Agreed. svnserve + svnservice is quick and painless.

Also, if you're sharing the one working copy and introducing
Subversion to your team for the first time, then people are
bound to forget to commit (at least in the beginning).

So be aware that if more than one person is working on the
same files, then when a commit does take place it may be
the culmination of more than one persons work. This also has
an impact if someone is unsure of what "Revert" does :)

peace
