We could continue to use svn for 1.3, entirely, but start using hg for 1.4 now.

Yeah, if we don't worry about branches we should do the full history.
I thought we had issues with importing our full history? The size is
an important factor, but I don't imagine it would be outrageously big
(I'm betting the libpurple binaries will be a factor in this though).

A good point, though we could run a second instance of trac just for
serving the old subversion information too.
