SVN scales pretty well, the only problem I basically have is not really
SVN related, but some clients become rather slow once you have myriads
of files on your HD, this is more a combination of svn producing several
configuratioin artefacts per file and NTFS which does not scale too well
with many files in one subdir hierarchy.
