Because it's the most known name. It's a matter of marketing. Just ask
your PHB. (But seriously: since when do these alternatives to SF exist?
When did Pd's CVS start? How much work is it to make a switch?)

SVN doesn't have branches in the CVS sense of the word: they have to be
replaced by more directories. I don't call this an annoyance fix. (and SVN
people call it a feature)

Don't underestimate the high number of externals. After all there are 55
registered Pd developers in SF.net. However, it might be true that
DesireData might be the project that uses the most CVS because a large
part of the communication between team members is done through CVS (most
of rest is done through IRC).

It's not that he doesn't like CVS, I mean, he wouldn't like SVN nor any
other. What Miller wants is to work alone and then make releases as zip
