Some more points I found interesting:

805867412 ffmpeg-svn-dump
165832859 ffmpeg-svn-dump.gz
   4601172 ffmpeg-svn-dump.lrz

  91566080 ffmpeg-svn.tar
  21777932 ffmpeg-svn.tar.gz
  16936128 ffmpeg-svn.tar.lrz

  17766400 ffmpeg-git.tar
  16747134 ffmpeg-git.tar.gz
  15984373 ffmpeg-git.tar.lrz

I wonder what svn-dump does that makes it so much more compressible than 
the repository itself, and can git do the same?
