Actually, svn export is quite reliable. So if we migrate to svn,  
there shouldn't be any difficulty in moving the physical server  
location later on.

On an earlier comment, I also think /externals/zexy/trunk instead of / 
trunk/externals/zexy would be better, but taking care of that after  
the big move with svn mv commands shouldn't be a problem? In my  
experience, it pays off to lay directories for an svn repo as you'll  
want to add them.

In any case, I've recently converted a (small) cvs SF project to svn  
and it went perfectly fine.

But, I can't be in Graz in September ;-)
