No, we just write Subversion. CollabNet provides the project
environment (tigris.org), which is managed by CollabNet Operations: we
can not change any parameters in the hosting environment... Sorry.
(And: No, CollabNet is not *the* entity developing Subversion,
although they have always been generous with donations!)
