here at orange we are using Subversion, see

we now have a really simple commandline-calling subversion 'integration' as a 
little py script in the help menu :)

but subversion also has python bindings (i guess originally developed for 
making web things like trac) so i think it would be straightforward to have a 
fully featured svn client in blender too as a script.
