Not true with current SVN. Storage Group support was just added, which 
allows any number of storage locations, both local and remote, and the 
intelligence to figure out the best one to use at any given time. No 
need for files system resizing, just add a drive (or NFS mount, or CIFS 
mount) and tell Myth it's available as storage.
