Also, I'm not about to start wasting eyeball time reading a thread
where everyone and his dog mentions his own mutually-incompatible
alternative to cvs.

And *nobody* (correct for rounding) is going to *touch* it if we're
not using cvs or svn.  Why on earth would I want to learn to use
a different tool for each project I'm involved with?

That's like using a different browser for each web site.  Although
I see we're also having _that_ discussion at the moment with respect
to Mac users.  [sigh].
