"Acceptable" has a bit of a range. While 5 seconds for some operation might be 
considered acceptable, < 1 second would be a lot more pleasant to use.

I would not have expected certain problems with svn either. Unfortunately 
expectations aren't always met. :-) I'd also prefer benchmarks with the Haiku 
repository over "independent" ones performed with other test data.
