Anybody who's pointed to it, looks onto our webpage to find
information or looks into the kdevelop manual. I know people often don't
read such things, but we can't do much about that, except telling them
where to find the FAQ. 

But the same is true for an information on the vcs-page, few people read
a paragraph on some gui form when all they want is select a vcs plugin.
Also I don't see currently how you want to do that, unless I'm mistaken
there's no way to display text on that page when svn is selected, unless
you also change the vcs-interfaces in kdev3. So its actually about a BIC
change in a bugfix release, which IMHO completely disqualifies this
