I wouldn't mind to move over to SVN personally. Just Another Versioning
Tool. But I do hope that SVN (don't know it really) supports:

- Running a tool right before the check-in is made permanent (in this case,
  check for GuideXML syntax, but in future might be expanded)
- Annotate function

Just don't ask us to migrate to ClearCase...
