  Description     : More anarchic revision control system

Codeville is a new version control system. 

All other version control systems require that you keep careful track
of the relationships between branches so as not have to repeatedly
merge the same conflicts. Codeville is much more anarchic. It allows
you to update from or commit to any repository at any time with no
unnecessary re-merges.

Codeville works by creating an identifier for each change which is
done, and remembering the list of all changes which have been applied
to each file and the last change which modified each line in each
file. When there's a conflict, it checks to see if one of the two
sides has already been applied to the other one, and if so makes the
other side win automatically. When there's an actual not automatically
mergeable version conflict, Codeville behaves in almost exactly the
same way as CVS.
