switch to subversion repository

Great! I'm unable to do it myself (I lack admin rights),

I updated your permissions -- you are now fully enabled -- and
submitted a migration request just using the default options.

Once the migration is complete, you can do your proposed
reorganization and then let us know what we've got :slight_smile:

    > matplotlib/ (top level) branches/ (empty for now) trunk/
    > setup.py lib/ (and so on)

    > https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/matplotlib/trunk
    > matplotlib

How will this affect the other top level packages, eg

  htdocs
  matplotlib
  toolkits
  users_guide
