One repository vs. many

Hello,

I'm coming to SVN from CVS, and we're looking at a few different
hosted SVN providers. One of the differences between the different
providers is the number of repositories you can create, which varies
from 1 to a few to unlimited.

Are there any big advantages to having different repositories for
different projects versus having one big repository with a tree for
each project? We will mostly have a large C/C++ code base, but may do
some Java GUI work, some Web stuff, etc. all of which will be
independent. Is there an advantage to keeping everything in its own
repository? It's possible to check out just parts of the SVN
repository to work on just one of those projects, right?

Also: the hosting providers I'm looking at are wush.net, CVSdude,
DevGuard, and hosted-projects.com. If anybody would be willing to
privately share with me their positive or negative experiences with
any of these folks, I would appreciate it.

Thanks!

----Scott.
