It's a matter of grading. I consider SVN a mediocre revision control. My
personal grading of the ones I've used for more than a few minutes, in a
scale of 1-10:

Perforce; 5.5.
SVN; 5 maybe 6.
CVS; 2.
SourceSafe; 0, because it's flaws can cause harm to productivity, and
that's being gracious.

But we might be going off-topic at this point ;-)
