Dear Mr. Furter,

    Yes, it's a good idea. I have suggested it to our coding managers and coding engineers. But they can not accept for our great source files and many outside debugging without version control system supported at user's locale.

Thanks & Best Regards,

I guess a possible solution to your problem would be to write a
script which imports your tree and groups files with the same modification
date into a revision with that date. That way you can just look at the log
of a file to see when it last changed.

I could help you with such a script if you like this idea.
