Well, a few of us are aware of a now-defunct company that wrote a
(supposedly) amazing changeset-engine repository. But if we said
more, we'd have to kill you. :-)

Sure.... but unlike Aegis, Bitkeeper, Clearcase, Perforce etc., in
subversion the user doesn't need to "declare" the task (changeset)
before beginning work, or "close" the changeset when finished. I
think that's the distinguishing CVS-like model; a subversion changeset
is *deduced* at commit-time.
