It would certainly be nice if there were One True VCS in 2010 instead of
the multiplicity of VCSs now.

As a slime luser, I certainly like being able to cvs up and get slime in
a few (tens?) of seconds. I don't have much experience with other VCSs,
but I didn't particularly like how long it took to grab asdf2 via git.
Anyway, that's my micropayment on this subject.
