Well...  I can't (and won't) speak for the entire team, but 
honestly, I'd rather not even mess with svn stuff here.  I 
realize that there are some things that don't give us much of a 
choice, but well, you get the idea.

With that said, unless the developers of mpd offer 
daily/weekly/whatever snapshots in tar.{gz,bz2} format, I don't 
think there's much chance of going anywhere with them anyway.

The biggest problem I have with svn is that it's a moving target, 
and the build script is subject to regular changes.  This 
introduces a lot of overhead for the admin team, and as you know, 
we're already behind as it is.

Regardless, take all of that for what it's worth, and if you 
think you can work out the kinks, then feel free to submit it and 
we'll go from there.
