imo, subversion is both easier to use and more powerful than cvs ...
but converting the current cvs repository to svn is not really
trivial ... because of different branch handling ...

some people have branches in their external folders, which would
probably be converted to subfolders ... making the directory structure
a bit messy ...
imo, it would be better to set up multiple repositories for the
externals, abstractions, and the pd core ... maybe ever multiple
repositories for the externals ...

but maybe someone has a better idea?
