I second that, if only to allow for the more modern use-case of 
distributed version control. It is great to have your own revisions on 
your working copy then once done to commit it. This is cleaner than 
creating your own branch in the 'old model' RCS like CVS and SVN.

Plus, Launchpad is an excellent collaborative system.
