[Twisted-Python] trac's reliability

I support using foom's /usr/local compiled SVN 1.4 on wolfwood as-is, and
migrating to fsfs.  I have used fsfs a bit here, and I'm confident that it
will not lose data.  If we migrate the SVN database, it might actually make
a server-wide upgrade to a supported (recent) OS a little easier.

I wouldn't recommend using a /usr/local compiled postgresql, however.  If we
switch to a pg backend for trac, I have a hunch things will go smoother if
the server-wide upgrade is done first.

In my head the basic plan looks like:

1- migrate to fsfs on a recent SVN.  Watch for improvements in trac.  If
trac starts to behave, stop here.

2- upgrade wolfwood server.  Watch for improvments in trac.  Upgrade pyramid
while you're in there. ;-)  If trac improves, stop here.

3- Migrate backend to pgsql.  Watch for improvements in trac.  If trac
doesn't improve, migrate to something not-trac.

Yes, I am volunteering my time.  I don't currently have any permissions on
these servers apart from commits.
