Do you think Subversion scales well for the following case, where
/trunk contains about 5000 files and its size is 500Mb
development requires 10 commits per day, 2-3 files changed per commit
on average.
Each commit is tagged (yes) from /trunk on the repository. How we will
test the tag is a separate issue.
For now also suppose the local wc only contains sparse-checkouts of
single files, not the whole /trunk.
Also suppose that a reorganization of /trunk is not possible.

(concrete tests cannot be done at the moment, I am collecting various
opinions based on user experience on big projects, before doing
