If you're an IDE-only developer and you don't care about backing out
changes, merging, refactoring, or tagging and branching, then you
might have a point about a "winning proposition for the developer".
But once you've experienced SVN's atomic commits, remote moving,
renaming, tagging and branching, etc., you'll wonder how you ever
lived without it. ;-) Some of the stuff we've done with the Struts
repo, since we switched to SVN, we probably wouldn't have dreamed of
trying with only CVS.
