Good morning, Andy.

In all fairness to my partner, the revision numbering scheme is a minor
irritation to him. And, the more I think of it the more I see that it
makes sense in the case of source code trees or inter-related documents,
and I think he has no problem with that. His main objections revolve
around ease of use and the fact that you can't check out individual files,
and you can't drag-and-drop files from the repository into your sandbox, at
least not with any of the GUIs we've tried such as SmartSVN, TortoiseSVN,
or WebSVN.

As for VSS, he owns a copy, it's the system he knows best and so there is
no learning curve for him. That's why he's pushing it.
