What is't mentioned often (perhaps because those not using VCS have no
notion of it and those accustomed to don't realize because it has
become second nature) is that a VCS nudges you to attach some mumblings
to each commit ("disabled $foo after $script bit my small toe off").
Whenever you feel a bit disoriented about "where you are", this log
of mumblings is gold.
