I don't know what makes you believe so.  To me the code seems rather
clear (incidentally, the buffer-setup thing was written by Stefan :-).

Probably because one of the backends refused to work otherwise (CVS is
a likely candidate).  Since this code does do its job, I have not yet
found significant reason to put any effort into simplifying it.
(Surely I didn't write it that way.)

If there's anything that concerns you, let me know.  But perhaps such
detailed discussions are better carried out in personal e-mail?  My
address is listed at the top of vc.el :-).
