I thought this was supposed to take a backburner.  It was noted that CVS _has_ 
some ACL stuff in place so that we can keep set permissions at a module level 
(does this include release branch, since these aren't really "branches"?) and 
that we don't _need_ a new SCM to accomplish the merger of core<->extras.

Personally I think a new distributed SCM would make things like downstream 
distributions (olpc, etc..) easier, ditto secondary arches.  There were 
strong concerns though of changing too much too quickly and not accomplishing 
the major goal(s) of the merger.
