If people hate you for making this suggestion then that's their fault.
Not every tool is made for every imaginable job.

The use case described is a good fit for distributed tools because
it is part of the problem domain they have been designed for.

Subversion has been designed for different use cases. There are
use cases where Subversion is more suitable than git or hg, but
that is not going to help with this particular use case.

Unfortunately, we cannot use any of these tools to take a bath.
We must accept that because the tools haven't been designed to
be bathtubs but version control systems. Too bad!
