I'd say that one of the things SVN has going for it is that it's 
the lingua-franca of VCSes, so just about everything (especially 
the 3 big names mentioned in this thread: hg, bzr, git) can talk 
to svn pretty uneventfully.  As a matter of fact, last I checked, 
Django is hosted in SVN, but most of the developers use DVCS 
tools to check in/out from the main repository to their own local 
hg/bzr/git repos, do their work locally (with the option to work 
offline, branch/merge easily, etc), and then push changesets back 
up when they have a patch they're happy with.
