That's fair, though if keeping things as they are is the most  
desirable course, why bother even pursuing the capability to change?  
If the advantages of SVN or some other system are not real advantages  
(or at least not for our purposes) then shouldn't we avoid developing  
the capability to change vcs?

Hahah. OK, I caught myself saying "we" on a whole aspect that I don't  
even want to help with. Forgive me. I'll stop being a buttinsky and go  
back to the stuff I've actually volunteered to do. =^)
