I'm not really worried about it.  Sounds like ongoing pain is pretty
much limited to keeping committer accounts/credentials up to date, and
that normal good backup procedures will deal with filesystem-SVN state
as a matter of course.

If there's one thing sysadmins love to do, it's fiddling with user
accounts and credentials -- if _anyone_ volunteers to work on
python.org, they'll be eager to lord this power over us <wink>.

If not, that's fine too.  The PSF has the funds and the mission to pay
for infrastructure support; I'd just _rather_ spend PSF funds on "more
glamorous" stuff (like grants and conferences).
