Cheapness ... maybe in binary disk utilization ( need an actual
comparison here I think ), but in cognitive overheads, I'd argue git's
branching system is definitely cheaper. Going from Git back to SVN,
the mentality of "copy a directory and you have a new branch!!!" seems
a bit crazy.
And switching between branches in-place at a fixed disk location is
definitely cheaper ( mentally at least ) than SVN.
I hope I never have to use svn switch again :/
