Troy wants to move crosswire to SVN in place of CVS. I think this could 
be a hassle for eclipse users in the short term although doing it now 
probably makes sense as Troy is migrating everything to a new server.

My biggest concern is, from 
*Subversion versions up to and including 1.0.5 have a vulnerability 
allowing mod_authz_svn read restrictions to be evaded. 
All users are advised to upgrade to 1.0.6 or 1.1.0-rc1.*

But from http://subclipse.tigris.org/
Subclipse is linked against Subversion 1.0.5 (Windows only for now)

I'm hoping that that subclipse linked to svn client 1.0.5 will 
talk to svn server (whatever version we are using) and not leave us open 
to attack.

So I think we might be stuck with command line or TortoiseSVN. Does 
anyone have experience of working with SVN and Eclipse, or SVN and Java 
in general?
