That's encouraging.

I'm sure you understand and agree that Subversion will NOT be useful to a
large organization/project until it implements this mode of operation. On
the flip side, I entirely understand that the CVS model is initially much
more convenient for programmers in small to medium sized projects, and
the transition is just one of many you have to go through in order to be
able to work on a larger scale.
