I know you're being facetious, but why is it unfortunate? SVN serves our workflow very well. The versioning system should get out of the way of development; it shouldn't "pull focus." SVN doesn't require you to spend a lot of time learning it and adapting to its way of doing things. (The learning curve for SVN was small for me. My initial (and subsequent) experiences with git are that it's very, very complex. And it gets in the way of most things I want to do. I still don't know what a "ref" or "object" is.)
