I haven't tried that yet. I'll go back to give 1.3.0 a try, when I
dig out from under the avalanche of short term issues caused by last
night's switch from CVS to Subversion!

Speaking of which: the process went quite smoothly, and the user
feedback is overwhelmingly positive. It's a team of about 30
engineers, an existing repository of 38000 revisions and about 6 GB of
data on the server.

Well done, gentlepeople.
