FAT is supported, but you will suffer a big penalty: since FAT stores
the file times only with a 2-second accuracy, SVN has to add waits to
make sure the files get different file times.
If you don't mind waiting those 2 seconds sometime for every file(!!),
then you can use FAT if you really have to.

But it's possible to format an USB stick with NTFS. So why not do that
instead and avoid all the trouble?
