I agree with you in principle.  However, at the moment we're at a place that is sort of reminiscent of the old vaudeville act:  the guy with the tableful of spinning plates that he all keeps going simultaneously.  Specifically, we've got *two* active branches going (Head and v2_branch), which still have a fair amount of cross-porting going on between them.  *Not* a time to be changing out as fundamental a piece of the development infrastructure as the version control system!

Perhaps when v3.x goes beta, we can do this.

Really?  Which distros are that?  I've used CVS on easily a dozen different distros over the years; with one exception, it's always 'just worked' out of the box.  (The exception was Slackware, which needed $CVS_RSH to be exported before the 'ext' method would work).
