Sure, source=size is usually not the issue anymore.  This is the old
sccs-versus-rcs issue again, isn't it?

Being able to do a local diff is real nice.  But I foresee lots of
transition pains; also there are a bunch of distro folks doing internal
CVS, mirrors, etc. because of firewalls and release versioning, etc. and
there could be significant drag with respect to a switch.  Nobody really
wants to use 2 different source-management systems for the same project,
