Right, again, need a Linux machine for this. :-)

Maybe I need to look for a professional SVN hosting with state of art
environment to make sure everything runs fine. 500,000 revs should be enough
for my any near future concerns (5 - 10 years later? We will have new system
anyway).

Another concern is performance. I keep seeing the word "time out" when I
read the book. The word "wedge" keeps me away from bdb, but the "time out"
is also scary.

When you check out a repository or commit a change, is SVN smart enough to
keep this operation a constant time frame, disregarding how many revs you
have? I feel like SVN has to re-calculate everything from rev0 in order to
reach the final state of every file in the repository.

Anyway, I like the FSFS approach, but the scalability is a real concern. I
am wondering why it's not a concern when the approach is decided, as it's
easily to partition the files in to a decent hierarchy folder structure
without too much work.

They're probably not hosting their repository on NTFS, though.
