There's real value in working with familiar tools, certainly. But for
a single purpose service, such as Subversion, it's possible to lock
down a single service device far more thoroughly, and have much better
control of when the system gets updated, backed up, etc. And the
filesystem performance of separate storage, such as NFS versus CIFS,
tends to be a lot better. CIFS 2 might address this: I've not had the
chance to try it.
