I would like for the website to remain editable through Subversion.
Having to edit content through-the-web has all of the same drawbacks
as having to write code through one's web browser.  Just like we now
do filesystem-based development, rather than attempting to edit and
maintain "Script" objects inside an application, so we also ought to
preserve our ability to access and version-control our content through
the same strong tools that manage our source code.

I also like the fact that someone can, with a single command, check
out the raw ReST files from Subversion and have quite readable text
documentation on their filesystem.

Can a Plone site - or at least part of it - be back-ended through
Subversion, or accessed through Subversion using DAV or something?
