The size of the .svn / .git dir will vary, dependent how often you 
"clean" it.

That is it will grow, when you work with the repro (svn update / git 
pull or commit ....)

So you can compare those either
1) immediately after your first checkout/clone

2) after cleaning
in svn "svn cleanup  --vacuum-pristines " not sure....
in git "git gc" (or git gc --aggressive)

IIRC, svn will end up a little bit smaller. But you lose that as soon as 
you stop running maintenance.

Not to say if you need to often switch between trunk and fixes.....
(In git, I have 2 work dirs, one for main, one for fixes => but only ONE 
.git dir => so that saves space)
