I've used svn pretty much since day one as it only updates what has been
updated, portsnap updates the whole tree regardless. They both take
approximately the same time but most of svn's time is comparing local
and remote working directories afaik. svn usually finishes within 10
minutes or less.
Some people don't like having svn's working directory on their system
(not sure why, but the world goes round just the same), but other than
that I'd say there has been no adverse affects aside having the latest
ports for your FreeBSD machine.
