Is the current storage on the san? If not, putting it there with
fail-over svn servers fixes the reliability issue without introducing
new locking issues. And if the san is faster than the local disk it
may help with speed as well. Does it all have to be in a single
repository? If not, moving different parts to different svn servers
spreads the load without sharing the same transaction lock.
