I was wondering, why Subversion? I found a pretty good comparison of some RCSs 
(including all the ones I've heard of):

Of those, the only ones that I think seem appropriate to switch to are 
Subversion, svk and Arch. I've tried neither of them, and heard good things 
about both. The Arch wiki has a more interesting comparison of CVS, svn, svk 
and Arch:

Based on these comparisons, I'd prefer to use Arch than Subversion or svk, and 
would prefer svk to Subversion.

I intend to play with both Arch and svn in the near future, to get a better 
idea of their differences. Before KDE's CVS is changed over to something 
else, I'd suggest at least a few other people do the same.
