That's certainly the case. CVS isn't wonderful but it does the job well
enough -- and it's certainly better using CVS than trying to learn
something new.

I could perhaps manage a switch to git -- but even that I'm not
convinced of the need for. And anything else would certainly be a
retrograde step, I think. After all I'm bad enough at typing 'cvs diff'
in git repositories already -- I don't want to add another gratuitous
new version control system into the mix.

I agree strongly with the above. If a switch is proposed, I'd like to
see a very clear list of the improvements it promises.
