Yes, interoperability with other revision management systems is a 
problem for all of the revision management systems.  It might be 
de-facto-solved it one system manages to talk effectively to the 
important other ones -- it won't be solved permanantly until there are 
adequate standard, system-independent protocols ... I don't see that 
coming soon.

And there;s the problem of welcoming the prodigal son.
A file gets away from the revision management system, and. much later, 
returns, much changed from the experience.  How should we slot it back 
into the system?
