Anyone doing subversion or source control integration with Windchill?

Was wondering if anyone is doing any kind of integrations with subversion or other tools in order to tie your software development into your Windchill environment. Our software development teams have moved to SVN but we would like to have visibility of the software release (at least) in WC. (MKS was suggested for investigation, but looks like an unlikely move.) At worst, we will do it manually, but it would be nice to have some linking of the release, change process, bug tracking, etc.

(I should have clarified and said that this is for integration of software development for our products and not for the WC system itself.)

It looks like we will continue using subversion for the code side (as I expected), but we will likely want to indicate and track released software in WC. It would be nice to have CRs/CNs tied to subversion and have bug tracking, feature requests, requirements, etc. accessible or visible in WC.
It has also been suggested recently that MKS may integrate with subversion, so we wouldn't have to change source control tools, but may be able to gain the features and integrations that we would want.

Yes in that case Integrity (acquired from MKS takeover by PTC) combined with
the Embedded Software Module in 10,1 of Windchill lets you create Software
WTParts. As more and more mechanical parts are replace with smart parts
based on electrical and software logic, as well as more safety and smart
sensors are integrated into devices, it makes sense to plan on licensing and
deploying this module. It is a natural way forward for those of us from the
software engineering configuration management (CM) realm, but mechanical
engineering CM folks tend to take the longest to persuade (and they
(engineering) traditionally sponsor or control the PDM/PLM systems when it
should be corporate wide).
