all favored SVN to some degree or another, and beyond the "not worth
the effort" the fact that switching from CVS to SVN requires
relatively minimal changes to tools was the main reason it seemed to
But in any event, I don't particularly care which we switch to;
whoever decides one way or the other has to do the work to actually

The game of science is, in principle, without end. He who decides one
