Agreed.

The server hosting *the* subversion repository (svn.collab.net) was
recently upgraded. The old box performed well and there were many more
than 10 devs accessing it. To quote C. Michael Pilato (one of the
Subversion devs), the old box was nothing special ...

    Why the migration? Put simply, the old box was a 700MHz desktop machine,
    with 256 megs of RAM, running RedHat 7.1, and sitting in a closet of the
    CollabNet Chicago office which is now inhabited by exactly one person.
