Must it be companies, or will large-scale open source projects meet
your needs? There quite a few of those around (Apache & KDE to name
two).

Unfortunately, many "large" companies prefer to give vendors large
sums of money for software, even if something free like Subversion
supports their requirements. Too many are still stuck in the mindset
of "if we paid a lot of money for it, it must be better than something
that cost us $0." Also, in many large companies there are multiple
groups doing development, and each might be using a different tool.

I know there are a couple people with General Electric email addresses
on this and the TortoiseSVN mailing lists, and their info indicates
they're with GE Infrastructure; I have no idea how large that division
is.

My employer is fairly small, but we're large-ish for the industry we're in.
