1. Fast tag and branch
2. Atomicity
3. The ability to retrieve, reliably, any past state of the sources

Basically CVS is long-obsolete junk. It never was a source control
system; it's really only a versioned-file system, with each file
managed separately. The appearance that changes to several files are
somehow related is just a fiction created by the CVS UI.
