Please. git managed to be faster in providing actually working
(i.e. tracked) merges than subversion, and then there was
the --reintegrate debacle that took another five years to
sort out.

Please. svn managed to be faster in providing granular access control,
sparse checkouts, handling large repositories and is *vastly* more simple
to use than git. It even has internal libraries with stable API's that
allow writing plugins and GUI's on top rather than them having to drive a
command line utility.

So ... it depends what you're after. git being faster at having tracked
merges doesn't make Subversion a bad system.
