Has there ever been an ELisp-based VCS?  Should we at least consider it?
The advantages are significant for this group of developers, and it
would certainly benefit other users.  The major disadvantage (besides
having to write the code), I imagine, is incompatibility with other
VCSs, and that can be addressed by a bridge to CVS/Git/Arch/etc as
deemed appropriate (similar to the git-svn bridge).
