I would say no.  All these other revision systems seem to come and go,
but their supposed features rarely seem to justify the learning curve
(the frequently steep, time consuming, and frustrating curve :-).

Emacs can work offline for diffs, for the most part.  (I never had much
joy when it merges, but I'm sure someone must have set it up to update
its cached current copy.)

Bit overrated those things, the output always seems pretty ordinary.
I suppose of course nobody's forced to use it though.
