	[good reasons for not including subversion ellided]

	On the other hand ...
	The traditional - and I believe still canonical - way of
updating the system is to recompile from source.
	I know I am not alone in feeling the system is substantially
incomplete if it does not come with all the tools necessary to do
	(Not slighting freebsd-update (don't know enough about it to
have an opinion); just pointing out it has limitations.)
