Just for the purposes of closure...

It worked. They (the "powers that be", spelt PHB) bought the licenses
today and we're moving to Subversion: although they think we're "moving
to VisualSVN". The first time we've ever dropped a Microsoft product
for F/OSS. Let's hope it's a sign of things to come; and let's hope
we'll actually be able to tell them it's F/OSS some time soon.

Thanks for all your help, folks. It swung the deal
