As a non-committer I can say _anything_ is preferable to the current
situation and svn is good enough.  bzr might make it even easier but svn
is familiar and it will work right now.  I haven't submitted a patch in
ages partly because using anonymous SF cvs plain doesn't work.

aside, at work we switched from cvs to svn and it the transition was
easy for developers, svn lives up to its billing as a fixed cvs.
