I'm using TortoiseSVN here, on a dual-core machine with 1GiB of RAM, and I can 
perform merges on a similar-sized project without problems. It's not 
lightning fast, but I can still use other programs while the merge runs. The 
repository is served via svnserve in the LAN and hosted on a Debian/Linux 
machine.

Of course, the complexity (i.e. memory and time) for a merge operation 
increases with the number of revisions and the number of files, but a mere VS 
upgrade should only touch projectfiles and maybe a few sourcefiles, all of 
which are easy to merge and not too large.


That said, what we have here is sourcecode that compiles in parallel on VC6, 
VC7.1, VC8 and eVC4. All you have to take care of is that the directories for 
output and intermediate files (OutDir and IntDir) have an according tag so 
that they don't interfere with each other. That's completely off-topic for 
this list though....

Cheers!

Uli
