And no issues in UNIX AFAICS... We (VNU) have already planned the adoption
of SVN as our backend repository for a number of reasons (the primary one
being that we will use it as our distributed filesystem, having our web
applications deployed from a URL like )...

Basically, no more checkouts, no more scripts, you apply the change to the
repository, and then it will go live straight away...

But as for you, for us the client is _damn_ important... And we need not
only to think about UNIX (server side), but with windows (JSPs amd XML
writers) and with MacOS/9 and X (all our graphics production team)...

We're testing hard on the baby, it's not quite there yet, but looks so
promising to us that we're investing quite a good amount of time on it..
