If you were evaluating Subversion then it is stable enough to handle big 
projects.  Off the top of my head, Samba and several Apache projects use 
Subversion.  I think what stops most people switching to it is usually 
the migration rather than the package ourself.  When we migrated from 
Visual Source Shredder to SVN we gave up and abandoned the history (just 
re-imported the files), but for some projects that might not be viable.
