They're totally different design philosophies. Perforce is designed
for a LAN, and the server happily tracks every sandbox of every
developer. CVS and Subversion are designed for the WAN... lots of
disconnected work happening, and a potentially unlimited number of
self-sustaining sandboxes. (Which is why it's so good for open-
source work -- and anonymous checkouts.)

I don't think Subversion has any goals of changing its design
philosophy here...
