Thanks for the compliment. :-) I've always had the same feeling,
despite the DVCS nut-cases on reddit screaming about "what a mess" the
svn codebase is. (That particular insult seems to surface over and
over whenever something well-established is no longer considered cool,
and people espouse it even when they've never looked at the code.)
