I can confirm that Phabricator was originally written for SVN (as that
is what is used internally at Facebook).

The ability to have Phabricator host repositories was something it
only gained around the time we started looking at migrating to it.
Prior to that it had exclusively been a repository viewer and code
review tool (and I suspect the code review part predates the
repository viewer component)
