I am new to Flash overall but enjoy working with Flash Builder Burrito... Yesterday accidentally wiped our few functions in one class which I now need ;-) which leads me to this question - what source control system does it support from the IDE itself? Can I integrate with my SVN server? I poked around options and cannot find any native integration. Would be nice to be able to check-in / out directly from the IDE.

Flash Builder is based off Eclipse so theoretically you should be able to use any Eclipse plugin that supports VCS integration. I am personally just keeping a shell open and using Git
You could try

Whether the IDE supports it or not, you may find it about as easy (or easier) to just work from the command line. If you're using Subversion, commit your working folder and then just have a command prompt open with the command "svn ci -m 'update' " in the history, and you just hit Alt-Tab (assuming Windows), hit cursor-up, Enter, and you're done.
(Only flaw in that argument is it won't automatically add new files to the repo. One solution to that would be to switch to Mercurial and use "hg addremove", which will add or remove files as required to keep things in sync.)

Not sure about Merc, but Git allows you to specify aliases in ~/.gitconfig which means you could essentially do something like
git acp "Commit message" to add untracked/modified files, commit with a message and push to the server.

If you use the Subversion Eclipse plugin, there will also be an option to view your "local history", which will show you file changes without having to manually commit anything.

Exactly, you can use the Subversive plugin to connect to your SVN repository. Here is a quick guide (in french, translate it with babel fish if you need):
