Based on the number of repositories hosted on Alioth. And on day-to-day
work within many Debian teams.

IMO it's typically the kind of script that gets written when one (it
might be you) feels the need for it. But I wouldn't bother writing it
right now because getting access to a svn repository is not much more
complicated than to login in a remote machine with ssh. 

You don't even have to install svn on your own machine, you log into
alioth, and do the svn checkout/commit there.
