The advantages look like a good start. I'd like
to add:

* The migration itself will cause a certain amount of disruption
* Those who just don't care will have to learn a new tool
   (transient, subjective).
* Links to svn will be broken. Trac and svn are currently
   heavily cross-linked. If someone has a way to avoid this
   problem, I'd be more than happy to withdraw it. (long-term).

(I'd just put this up, but I wanted to post here first
to make sure that I'm not just missing something and
that they're expressed in a fair way.)

In Christ,
