There was an easy way not to problong the discussion. Restore the svn commit

proud and afraid to lose face.
Better: do like Linus, and take away access from all but one person.
BSD has always had nasty fights over commit access. Commit bits
are greatly political in nature. They can not be removed without hurt.
Thus the existance of OpenBSD and DragonflyBSD.
Linux doesn't suffer this way. The closest thing ever was the IDE
maintainer being changed a couple times. (so avoid MAINTAINERS
files too) Feelings can't get hurt all that much if there isn't any
status to revoke.
Both SVN and CVS have a server-centric model that ultimately leads
to nasty poltics. The alternatives are git, Mercurial, and monotone.
