That's a really good point Jo. I've looked at svk a bit before but not 
in much detail. While svk decentralized model is promising my concern, 
at present, is that svn is more stable and /much/ better documented than 
svk (and more familiar) we'll probably stick with svn as a first choice. 
However this certainly not a closed issue.
