And I thought nobody was using X-Symbol anymore.

If you have one directory per document, Git tends to be a more flexible
solution.  Admittedly, it is not all that good for keeping independent
files in the same directory versioned independently (sort of like a
glorified file backup).  It would be an interesting exercise to teach
this modus operandi to Emacs/VC (basically, keep a separate .git style
directory for each file-gittified file and set the respective
environment variable or command line argument to it for VC operations).
