If VCS stuff gets introduced, it'll be far in the future, and probably
as a plugin.

I do have ideas on how to support multiple "revisions" of things.  I'll
try to write that up soon when I put in, but I'm thinking it'll be more
of keeping the old file, adding a new file, and just keeping annotations
in the database about which ones are which so we can show that to users.

If people want a VCS, there are already a lot of tools that handle that
better than we would currently.

The bottom line.
