Based on what numbers?  Does "within Debian" mean on d.o hosts?  That
would ignore much dVCS use.

Where "well" means "to avoid using svn, install svn" which is a bit
absurd.  It's a shame that svn isn't compatible with other things even
as much as git is.

This is necessary, not just a "can always".  Not all places DEPs will
be sent from will be able to access svn, but they should all be able
to send email to send the DEP out AFAICS.
