2 cylinders are not intuitive, but 3 are? It is not intutitive because it
is not the same as the CVS icon, but you are the one who is demanding we
change it? Please just stop.

I didn't like it. It was crowded, wasn't all that different from the
original icon, and didn't really add anything. The ugly "SVN" version was
probably better. I have attached alternates for the perspective and view
that are based on the Subversion logo. I think they look pretty good,
possibly better than the current ones. I haven't committed them.
