There hundreds if not thousands of quite large projects on Sourceforge,
using Subversion. Given the Bitkeeper license craziness that the Linux
kernel went through (when the core developer of Samba reverse engineered the
protocol and ticked off the Bitkeeper authors), I bet that the Linux kernel
developers have lamented using Bitkeeper occasionally ever since.

Some of the lacking tools (such as enforced submitter logging and bug
tracking integration) may be addressable by the very flexible pre-commit and
post-commit "hook" operations.
