IMHO to answer this question one should know how often free-dict team do 
releases and how what is more easy to automate svn or sourceforge downloads.

If releases are often and sorceforge downloads can be automatically downloaded 
and transformed by scripts, then it is good to use it. But I would not bet, 
that there will be no problems with file names etc while downloading...

If they do releases much less often then you want to update packages, then it 
is better to use svn snapshots...
