The problem with Subversion/CVS is that they suck at branching and  
merging, and that's precisely that reason why Ter uses Perforce (very  
good at branching/merging). Although I would love universal anonymous  
access to the source code repo, switching to either Subversion or CVS  
would be a backwards step.

However, a Subversion-based *mirror* of the Perforce repo would be  
fine. Git would be even better (faster, better tools).
