If I were making this program, I'd look at WinCVS to get the list of things
the program needs to do, but nothing more. WinCVS is *way* too complicated,
and for me it's simpler just to use the command line. WinCVS is also the
number one reason why we ended up using Visual Source Safe at my last job --
I suggested CVS (before Subversion was around, of course), but my bosses
wanted a GUI and WinCVS sucked too much. Like you said, it is a truly
awsome^H^H^H^Hful piece of software :)
