With such a small ratio of files to folders,
you might not benefit from moving away
from NTFS, where the slowest feature you
experience occurs when the ratio of
files to directories gets high.

Increasing the ratio to a couple dozen
files per directory would optimize NTFS
which you could then objectively compare
to the speed of other file systems and
operating systems. (By OS I mean you
could boot one of your existing PCs
into Linux for faster file-, directory-,
and, therefore, svn- response.
