greg wilson, in his excellent "so you want to write about python?" 
tutorial, was speaking about the importance of source control.
i don't have the exact quote (my notes are elsewhere), but he said
something along the lines of:

	given the choice between a good text editor and a good source
	control system, i'll take the source control, and use "cat" to
	write my code.

excellent advice.
