I have a file-sync agent that uses a non-standard Subversion install as a
backing-store over WebDAV. It only keeps one copy on the client side, and
will shuttle all saves around the team that is subscribing to the same
directory in the repo. It obeys permissions of course. It happily moves
10GB files, and like Svn itself can go up to multiple TB in the backend
(I've tested it to 3.4TB). Tech is written in Python. It suits people that
use MS-Office as tool, rather devs doing development.

Can you say more about your usage patterns, the numbers of people who'd use
it, the frequency of change, and the where there users are on the
source-control savvy spectrum?
