I might be missing something but not sure why would one want to store a
database in SVN. I could understand that people doing TTW Zope 2
development would have source code in ZODB but Zope 3 does not have any
TTW development functionality at the moment and all of your source
should be on the file system.  Python scripts could automate building a
site or site utilities and I would have that sort of stuff in svn.  But
as far as persistent content goes this is more of a data
backup/migration issue.  fssync I think was mentioned on the list for
pulling content objects out of ZODB in Zope3 on the file system but not
sure if it is available yet.
