Like many others said git or mercurial would be perfect. I myself prefer mercurial even though they are very similar and either will do. I like mercurial because of the sane cmd line interface and branch flexibility. For instance if I want a perm named branch I got it or temp through bookmarks. I even have the option for stacked patches. All of this follows a nice clean easy to remember interface.

I used SVN a lot (even home repositories for all kind of stuff) and was one of those "don't fix it if it isn't broken" guys towards version control, looking sceptically at this git-"hype". However one day I had to learn/use git because work demanded it. It easily outperforms SVN in every way and made all sourcecode managing a piece of cake. So if you're a die-hard SVN user you might consider trying git for your next project. (don't know about mercurial though, heard it's similar to git)
