Absolutely!  I've been watching subversion for a year and playing with it. 
I'm all in favor of it. I just think there are *still* some rough edges to 
be smoothed out. I know several large companies are using it and that its 
generally "okay" at this point. But, I'm still reading on the user's list 
(this past week) about people losing their entire repositories due to 
database corruption. I'm not saying that would happen to LLVM, but it 
doesn't sound like stability to me. 

When the time is right, I'm all in favor of subversion. 

And, I *am* one of the developers (a minor one albeit :).
