This seems like a much more elegant solution to me. I just checked and
Boost uses Subversion so it should work with too much problem. The URL
is http://svn.boost.org/svn/boost/trunk. I don't know what the issues
may be if we change our VCS. There has been some discussion about using
Lauchpad which uses Bazaar as it's VCS.
