More likely, people are "happy enough" with CVS (warts and all) to not
want to invest the time and effort on alternatives.
I really feel pretty strongly that if we're going to switch, there needs
to be bigger investigation into what work people are trying to do, how
they accomplish it and how we can make things _better_ rather than just
switching SCMs for nominal amounts of tool improvement.
