i'm not too sure about putting myself in developpers mind before i
post would help this project. there is already great developpers
here(like garret the great, philip the fast, brane the brain) ...
just the plain user focus is a little underrepresented ;)

this concerns:
- features needed or not
- things bugging or not
- real needs for people coming from
  other dummy version control products

from this viewpoint i'm very aware that sometimes it sounds strange
what we think ....
