RE: Am thinking of using subversion as a general purpose filing system

You are correct. I was comparing a single server subversion solutions with a
file server solution with servers in each office. But even under this
solution users on modems do not have a local server to save to, so
speed/file size limitation still applies.

Sure, but note that this has nothing to do with Subversion. If your users
are on modems, it will take them X amount of time to transmit a GB of data.
It doesn't matter what revision control system you're using -- that GB has
to get across the wire somehow before any other user sees it, and if the
wire is a phone line, it will be slow. No software can solve that :-).
