I'm not blaming vcs/cvs/subversion for anything.

It was pointed out that Eclipse + Subclipse + subversion does not and
should not deal with out of bounds copy/move/delete. This is a
significant limitation that it is important to be aware of. Why this
limitation exists or where it arises is not particularly interesting.

Eclipse + CVS handles out of bounds copy/delete/move reasonably well and
this lead me to believe that Subclipse would eventually be able to pull
of the same stunt.

So, sometimes Eclipse + CVS makes sense and other times Eclipse +
Subclipse makes sense.

I'm using both but for completely disjoint projects.

Before Subclipse existed, subversion was never even considered. So far
I'm quite encouraged by the Subclipse support.
