+1 from me for various reasons:

* Subversion seems to be stable enough, and it's better than CVS  
which is enough for me.

* The python.org machines can probably handle the load of *one*  
repository better then the SF machines that of several thousands.

* Connectivity to python.org is much better then to cvs.sf.net (at  
least from here).

* Our company repository might move to svn in the near future, so a  
Python svn repository would be a perfect playground to learn svn. ;)
