I want svn, I think.  I'm open to more sophisticated approaches but am
not sure that any of them are really mature enough yet.  Probably will
be soon, but not soon enough to void the effort of moving to svn

I'm not really a release manager these days, but if I was, I'd wand
svn for that reason too.

The third set of people who count are pydotorg admins.  I'm not really
one of those either at the moment.  While SF's CVS setup has it's
problems (occasional outages; it's only CVS) it's hard to beat what it
costs us in sysadmin time: zero.

  <Erwin> I recompiled XFree 4.2 with gcc 3.2-beta-from-cvs with -O42
          and -march-pentium4-800Mhz and I am sure that the MOUSE
          CURSOR is moving 5 % FASTER!
