So SVN would actually be more stable then?

Is it possible to define "interacts poorly with cookies"? I do think our application relies quite heavily on cookies for session handling. Does interacting poorly imply that any site where cookies are used do not work well with Varnish, or simply that Varnish does not handle caching well when cookies are involved?
