I agree, in general. Currently things are moving rapidly and I feel that
using svn would break my momentum. As things slow down, as internals
stabilize, and if people want to help and feel more comfortable with
svn, I will either start reflecting my work to the sandbox or entirely
switch to it. It just happened that Sergey guessed that I had a repo of
some kind and requested access. So why not?

In the meantime I frequently post to the vault and both Mercurial and
Darcs make it possible to browse the repo via the web.

Sure, that has always been my intent.
