ah, are you developing other source code control systems?
hm. that may be a problem.

i'm not going to argue this at length, as it is only an idea at present.
if i were using it, you would find it under its openlog. it probably has
the best merge/conflict resolution in the business, something i find very
important. in any case i'm agnostic for the most part, having used sccs,
teamware, rcs, cvs, bk, clearcase et al. when we we need to choose one
for a few people to change code, we can select something... [you see, one
reason people keep using cvs is that they don't have to argue about the
next best thing they want to use; they all agree about the mediocrity
of what they have that more or less works... :)]
