It's not a problem for the project but I personally experience pain with
CVS. I often want to take a bunch of commits and merge them into seperate
trees (like Greenplum DB or my private bitmap index tree). This is a lot
easier with the patch set based SCMs like darcs/monotone/git/etc.

Just my thoughts.
