Well, we don't actually have the command yet. But, reasons to pick

  * It's more fun.

  * It's more descriptive. ("annotate" is counter-intuitive, really; it
    sounds like a command to attach a note to a revision, or something.)

  * It's what large segments of the CVS community call it in

  * It's easier to type and say.
