Note that in those cases the design of the app plays a role much bigger
than the implementation language. Besides svn is known for being one of
the slowest systems, so you might want to compare with either Mercurial
or Git. In any case, if you have performance issues that show up in mono
that don't show up on .net, please let us know so we can try to fix
