Repository on SAN

I know that you are not supposed to host the SVN repository on a network
share, like NFS or samba, and the best practice is to use local disk.

But, I was wondering if I could connect my subversion server to my
existing FC SAN fabric, and host the repository on a dedicated LUN.

Does anyone have this configuration? Our SVN repository is
mission-critical, and is quite large it currently has over 94K
revisions, and I really want the performance, and redundancy that the
SAN offers.

The SAN LUN's appear to the host OS as local drives, so I assume that
this configuration would be valid, but before I migrate the most
important data in my organization, I would like to hear anyone else'e
thoughts or experiences.

BTW, I currently using BDB, and I'm thinking of switching to the FSFS
