My instinct is that a VCS-based source package format is not useful for
Subversion, and hence would have no impact on svn-buildpackage.  People
using Subversion would need to convert to a different VCS to use VCS-based
packages.  (You really need the repository to live in the local directory.
CVS would have the same issue.  You could do a VCS-based package on top of
RCS, though.  *pause*  I really hope no one feels the need.)
