One thing that the DVCS crowd pushes is that that's _not_ the whole
story.  With CVS (or other centralized systems), the VCS is a
development tool for the few core people, and a glorified
FTP/snapshotting system for everyone else.  With a DVCS, _everybody_
gets a development tool out of it.

ObBias: After much resistance, I drank the distributed Kool-Aid.  My
poison of choice is bzr, which is very probably not ready
performance-wise for Pg.  So, I also look forward to a switch
happening not now, but in a year or two, when the performance failings
are historical and bzr can be chosen   8-}
