Yes, it is a work in progress, and will be for a long time. Most
optimistic estimation puts it at about 2100. Money, not technology, is
the limiting factor, of course. Barcelona does not pay the Sagrada
Familia work; individual contributions do.

I don't doubt it. I'm just saying that all these things, wonderful as
they are, don't imply that you can not do development well with CVS. You
can. Lotsa people can.

Yeah, but you know what? What I like more from subversion is that it
isn't radical, it "doesn't go far enough". It is (or tries to be) just
"a better CVS". A better CVS is fine by me.
