Bigger projects than Python use it and consider it mature for real use
(All the Apache projects, all of KDE, GNOME is planning on switching
soon, etc).

I've never seen a corrupted FSFS repo, only corrupted BDB repos, and I
will happily grant that using BDB ended up being a big mistake for
Subversion.  Not one that could have easily been foreseen at the time,
but such is life.

But this is why FSFS is the default for 1.2+

I've never seen you post about a corrupted repository to svn-users or
svn-dev or file a bug, so i can't say why you see corrupted repositories
if they are FSFS ones.
