That's with the BerkeleyDB (BDB) repository backend. The other choice
is the FSFS backend, which is the default as of Subversion 1.2.0.
FSFS stores each revision as a separate file.

AFAIK, we used ReiserFS on our development server at my previous job,
where we hosted an FSFS-based Subversion repository. No problems so
