For CPython, we still need SVN, e.g. for the website repo, and several others
like it that probably won't get converted (yet), and also for reference since
we won't convert every old branch to hg.

If that isn't necessary for Jython, I see no reason for moving into
svn.python.org first.


Thus spake the Lord: Thou shalt indent with four spaces. No more, no less.
Four shall be the number of spaces thou shalt indent, and the number of thy
indenting shall be four. Eight shalt thou not indent, nor either indent thou
two, excepting that thou then proceed to four. Tabs are right out.
