That seems tough.  The major architectural differences between
git/Mercurial/Bazaar and Subversion are:

  * No commitment to mixed-revision working copies.
  * Full history of at least one branch is generally stored on clients.
  * DVCS workflow support.

For small projects and a certain class of developers, these can be huge
advantages.  For huge projects and a different class of developers,
these can be hindrances.
