We're striving only for a "compelling replacement", not necessary a
"compatible one". Were compatibility a hard rule instead of just a
guideline we use to reduce the Subversion learning curve, Subversion
wouldn't exist -- yes, CVS is *that* broken. Oddly enough, sometimes
in the course of making things better you actually do have to make
them different.
