Thick vs Thin Client SCM Tools

From: Vaughan, Steven <Steven_Vaughan_at_G1.com>

Hello all, I was hoping I could call on the collective wisdom here to
help me with a bit of a puzzle at my company. We are currently hashing
and rehashing which tools would best serve, and (coming from a CVS heritage)
I tend to favor SCM tools with 'thicker' clients (those that store local
metadata) in general, and Subversion specifically. The current push,
however, is for a thin client tool (Perforce) that does not store any local
metdata. I have my own favorites, but I was wondering if ya'll would mind
trotting out your pet compelling arguments for or against thick vs thin
SCM tools? If anyone's entertained by it, resurrecting ye olde svn vs p4
would also be helpful in light of svn 1.2.x.

Thanks a bunch in advance,
