That's mostly because it's extremely polluted.  Branch and tag
names are mixed all over the place.  That doesn't sit well with
the normal subversion tree style, due to name collisions.

I know this because I tried to convert it to svn some time ago.
FreeBSD's repository needs a slightly different svn repository
layout than usual in order for it to work.  :-/

However, perhaps svn is not the best choice, in fundamental
style.  As a diverse project, FreeBSD should support remote,
loosely coupled repositories based on the main one.  I believe
svn doesn't work well for that purpose.
