Erm ... but this is not an argument in favor of changing.

AFAIR the only real disadvantage of CVS that we've run up against is
that it's hard to shuffle files around to different directories without
losing their change history (or more accurately, making the history
harder to find).  Now that is a pretty considerable annoyance on some
days, but it's not sufficient reason to change to something else.
I have no doubt that every other SCMS has annoyances of its own.

Conservatism is kind of inherent in our problem domain, no?  I mean,
you might have great arguments why XYZ is the best operating system
since sliced bread and everyone should migrate to it immediately, and
you might even be right --- but you'd be foolish to expect quick uptake
by the average DBA.  There is great value in being familiar with one's
