Well, I can see a way it could be. svn is enhanced such that the code
is encrypted at the client side, and then passed over the network and
stored on disk, still encrypted. When you check out the code, it's
decrypted client side.

The drawback is that all files would essentially become binary and
hence non-mergable.
