What I find strange in all this is the view that ALL projects at Apache 
would have to change to OtherSCM if one project would want that..

Indeed, I find the decision to use one single SVN repo for the entire 
organization's source pretty strange. I'd believe that one repo for 
every TLP, for example, would be great (AFAIK, TLP-promotion can be 
handled too with history preserved). This would help in every single 
aspect in regard to the volume of source and activity, could use 
multiple servers etc - and incidentally using another SCM for a 
particular project wouldn't be that big a deal anymore. The only 
downside I see is a slight bit more configuration management, and that 
copying/moving a file from one repo to another would not keep history 
that well. How often does this happen, though?
   However, I'm no SVN expert, so I can easily have misunderstood
