Does subversion preserve these?

I am sure that when working, Subversion is the coolest thing since sliced bread. What turned me off to it is that its operating/runtime requirements are much more substantial than CVS due to its use of a complex database. Subversion itself does not seem nearly as portable as CVS. Subversion is not useful (to me) if its client can not be easily compiled in (or downloaded for) every modern target environment. Maybe things have improved since I tried last.
