SubVersion is already very inefficient when it comes to disk space. So
now you are suggesting I run a SubVersion server locally (+-250MB of
data) and the setup of svnd (subversion daemon) and have a local
checked out repository (another +-310MB) just so I can see the history
of files quicker.

Git can do all that in a single directory tree, no daemon and only use 133MB.
