Then you'll be pleased to know that Subversion supports the FSFS repository format as well as BDB. FSFS just uses the filesystem so avoids the drawbacks of a database. I had no particular objection to BDB but over time experienced some awkward locking behaviour with shared repositories, so I have converted all my projects to FSFS.
