Well, for one, with SVN you no longer need to have all-hands meetings  
at the start of the project to figure out what your directory  
structure should be.

Seriously, I think the evidence is pretty clear at this point that  
SVN, etc. suck less than CVS.  A lot less.  Personally, CVS would be a  
red flag for me when considering a new job or the like.

Not really Python-y tho...

I'd like to see a demo/talk of Review Board (which is Python).  Google  
Code recently added code review, it's been super helpful (but won't  
work in-house, obviously).
