BerkeleyDB or FSFS ?

Hi,
 
let me introduce myself first, since I'm new to the list. My name is Markus KARG. I am leading the development team and such I'm responsible for version control here in our company.
 
We are using Microsoft Visual Source Safe 6 for several years now and want to switch over to SVN now. I've read the excellent book from O'Reilly and like to start as soon as possible. The book told me that SVN in basing on BerkeleyDB only, now I have seen that 1.2 comes with a new backend called FSFS.
 
So before I'm doing something wrong, I want to ask some questions.
 
1) I heard that FSFS will be the default in the upcoming SVN 1.2. Is this true?
 
2) Does it make sense to do BerkeleyDB at all? FSFS seems to be superior to BerkeleyDB in nearly any point.
 
Thanks a lot!
 
 
 
Mit freundlichem Gruss / With kind regards
