I wouldn't have asked if I didn't have any problems with using
Subversion. Accessing mlton.org from some machines at work is quite
cumbersome. Either I had to spend time setting up ssh tunnels to
access mlton.org or work without version control.
Luckily, I've recently discovered git-svn which solves this problem

Depends on what constitutes "broken" and how much an improvement
Subversion is bad enough that I would argue that switching to
something better might make sense even for a one-foot-in-the-grave
project such as MLton.
Anyway, this was just a probe to see if there's any interest in this
sort of thing. There appears to be none, so never mind...
