    Binaries for old environments/systems are compiled on old machines.
    svn requires more disk space than p4, which is probably not always

Not a problem.  You don't need svn to do a compile.  Just an rsync'd
tree is enough -- many of the binary sets we have now are
compiled by people who never touched p4.
