I'd tend to agree here. Not that I have much experience with big
projects. But upon reading the thread, I got the same impression.
What is desired here is called configuration control, and it is a
different thing than version control. Configuration control is
done with conditional compiling--the "#ifdef"s that Jody talked
about.
