Besides easier way of handling some corner cases, as exampled by
Friedrich W. H. Kossebau, this is the main reason. If WebSVN goes
away, it means redesign of l10n.kde.org to extract PO/POT files to
some storage place for serving. It might take less space than a full
copy of SVN repo, but who volunteers to write the code (before WebSVN
is shut down)?
