I think they did a good job with the examples, but ideal would
be for them to have known what *I* was going to be using version
control for.

In the absence of that :-), exercises at the end of chapters
might help.

Anyway, I wonder what percentage of subversion users taught
themselves to use it by means of the book, and what percentage
learned it as part of a subversion-using team.
