  Current Pain Points

    * No atomic commits
    * Not being able to work offline (cvs add needs a server, wtf.)
    * Adding sources can be "weird", can easily clobber existing sources
    * Can't handle big files well
    * CVS bogons/bonghits/grimlins/websuckage
    * Prohibitively expensive to reconstruct infrastructure outside our
    * Better handling of force-tag
    * Commits are SLOW!!!
    * Common dir, wtf.
    * Really really unreliable (especially with a lot of actions or
      continuous actions)
    * Prep work to get into package source control is done outside of source
      control. No opportunity to learn the tools
