   svn diff uses locally saved copies of files. This increases speed by
trading for the disk space. It also decreases net traffic; that's important
for those who have expensive connections.

   Fast and cheap in terms of space; Subversion uses a kind of symlinks in
its internal filesystem.

   Much more pleasant. I now use more branches than I did with CVS and have
less conflicts.

   I would very much like to recommend developers to set svn:executable
property on executable scripts and unset it on non-executable files; thus
all those README and NEWS will be tarred with -rw-r--r-- attributes. :)

           Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
