IIRC, long ago, when there were only 3 or 4 svn developers, we decided
that we would always use the phrase "revision control", and never use
the phrase "version control". I can't remember the rationale, but I
remember the resolve.

More recently, I thought we had laughed at this resolve, shrugged our
shoulders, and all agreed that we'd go back to saying "version
control", because we couldn't remember why it mattered, and we were
all used to saying "version control" colloquially anyway.

Well anyway, Fitz, Mike and I decided to standardize on "version
control" in the documentation a while back. So I kinda laughed out
loud when I saw this commit tonight. It's just a big bikeshed, I
guess. :-)
