Well, valgrind is a very nice and useful tool. (I know becuase I'm also using 
it extensively) However, I think that perhaps GNU Arch deserves to win 
because:

1. It's also supposed to be very nice.

2. Its main developer (Tom Lord) is desperately in need of cash, as he is 
currently unemployed. (or at least was the last time I checked).

This is despite the fact that I'm actually using Subversion where I can, and 
CVS where I must. Of course, Subversion was not nominated, and it has no 
problem of funds, because a large part of its development is sponsored by 
Collab-Net. (and it otherwise has plenty of volunteers who don't need to be 
supported).
