Looks good to me. Tom, what do you say? Are you willing to discuss the
corrections implied by this?

This still isn't what I'd hope to see; although it's nice to correct a few
factual errors in Tom's document, I'd like to produce (er, I mean, have
someone else produce) a document which compared the actual strengths and
weaknesses of each VCS system.

As things stand, even with these corrections, Tom's document still compares
arch's design strengths with points which never even entered into
Subversion's design, and it doesn't attempt to put that into the perspective
of "who needs this design point".

I find it bizzare that "uses a database" would be considered a universally
negative point by Tom, for example. Surely there are some people who NEED
to not use a database (we have some of them on the Subversion list, and
surely their needs will eventually be met), but just as surely there are
huge benefits from using a database.
