Well...it's not that that is how "I" develop as being different, it is
the 'environment' that was put in place years before I began work at
this location and to change it would take either an act of Congress
(U.S.) or God...or perhaps both. Our client is a state government with
the worlds 5th largest economy (so I've read).
We have numerous .asp pages and mainly .html pages that are relatively
(if not out right) independent of other files in the same directory. VSS
works excellent for what we need, 1 file check out and check in. But
unfortunately for us (for productivity sake), the developers, our client
is not willing to pay for the VSS upgrade (see above reference to act of
Congress) and I don't blame them. I too am a huge fan of open source,
but at my location we are heavily a $icrosoft shop that some of us are
trying to change with time. Hopefully we can convince management that
switching to a tool like Subversion would be for the benefit of the
developers and our account as a whole.

That's an existing enhancement request.

That said, our PHP projects are complete systems. It's not just a
collection of hundreds of independent PHP files. As such, one page's PHP
file needs the database objects, template engine, all sorts of library
functions, and so on. It would not do any good to check out a single PHP
file because to test the modification would require a good portion of
the rest of the code to be checked out.

Perhaps you develop differently, but that's why it's a nonissue for us.
