I'm absolutely loving it and will never move back to SVN.  :)  productivity has increased, and I now do commits much more frequently (like I'm meant to be doing!), which is great.  A commit is pretty much instantaneous, and then I do a push once a day or something like that, which is quicker than I found a commit to be with SVN...  :)

I think using Subversion as the backend is fine. You can still pull you own local Git, Mercurial or Bazaar repository, commit to it and push back to CrossWire's or some other Subversion repo when necessary.
