generic is good, provided
  -we can have a conceptual model that is consistent across all SCM 
systems.
  -we can deal with extensibility through antlibs. I suppose  you'd have 
a new type,
   SCMbackend that every backend would implement; declaring a new 
backend would
   let you register it.

Question: could you just get away with some mixin import lib that 
declared the appropriate macros for the appropriate platform?
