I went and looked for the discussion since Merlin mentioned it (and I'm
a happy user of both Subversion and PosgreSQL and recommend them both).

I don't think they do think that the implementation is relevant. The
only message I saw mentioned it
in passing, as in, "wouldn't it be great if PosgreSQL development used
Subversion which stored
the data in a PosgreSQL backend."

This is the real Issue for one of the primary developers and commiters,
Tom Lane:
   http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-hackers/2004-11/msg00183.php
   Summary: he's never lost data with CVS and does not have the same
confidence in the alternatives

This message gives you an idea how the thread started (Tom Lane didn't
want to move a file and lose history):
   http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-hackers/2004-11/msg00135.php
   (and look at Tom's follow-up)

If you send a message to that list and aren't subscribed, it'll get
flagged for moderation. (I did anyway to provide a few
clarifications.)
