I see.

We already moved all the content to SVN [1][2] but that is a totally
different system. I agree that using the CMS only sounds good.

The only thing is that [1][2] allows different output formats (HTML,
PDF, zipped HTML). I don't think that that is supported by the CMS. But
maybe that is not required.
