I'm not sure here, but I don't think a reliable VCS is an easy task.  On
Linus' google talk he said that when he tried to choose an existing VCS
he could hardly find one that could guarantee that what comes out is
exactly as that was put in.  I don't know how trustworthy the statement
is, but it rings my alarm bells.

Are you talking about that FFI patch that's pending because Richard
isn't sure about legal issues?
