- If you're dealing with an extremely large number of developers, using
seperate repositories will not have users wait for a database lock (of
course, depending on the db backend used) as often as a single big
repository would.

- Multiple smaller repositories can be distributed amongst different
servers, eg. one local server only available from machines within your
company and one public server which can also be accessed from home over
the internet

- The "all together in one repository" solution would not let you adjust
the user access rights on a per-project basis, so every department had
full access to everything or no access at all

- Using one large repository, subversion's repository-wide revision
number will even be counted up for inactive projects. Not a problem at
all, but even components with no active development will be assigned
higher revision numbers constantly (which quickly grow ridiculously
large) making it somewhat inpracticable for up-to-date checking purposes.
