I'd vote for a db-neutral approach, since the main reason for doing this is a
'comfort' benefit for IT managers. SVN doesn't really need an SQL backend (fsfs
rocks), but it would make a lot of people feel better if their repositories
could be stored in regular SQL Server / Oracle / etc db's. Something they
understand and feel comfortable with.

If it just supported a single platform like SQLite or MySQL I would stick with
fsfs. No point swapping for people like me.
