I tend to think if you can't use one of the vc systems already
provided, you need specialty hosting and with that, probably a lot of
care and feeding.  We are already offering the most common SCMs in use
(except CVS ^^ see above).  Always saying 'yes' and allowing new
things to pop up is not maintainable in the long term.  I am actually
surprised we offer as many SCMs as we do.
