Oh, OK, you were going for *de*centralized VCS. I didn't
realize that. Actually, you are right. IF we switch we might
as well think about switching to something that supports
distributed work better. However, switching to subversion
might be a sensible first step because it has a lot of other
advantages over CVS.

BTW, why not use GIT ;-)

Oh, it offers a lot, like sanely renaming files or deleting
directories ... :-)

I tend to think that as long as the developer base is rather
small it'd be sufficient to use a centralized VCS -- but a
better quality one than CVS.
