I'm going to throw my hat into the ring and suggest Monotone
( It has all the distributed revision
control features of Arch, plus insanely cool branching and merging, plus
integration with graphical merging tools (ie. meld) and branch
visualisation tools.

All in all it looks pretty cool and works today, plus we don't get those
hideous branch names. I have spoken with a Monotone developer who is
happy to rsync our CVS tree to test that it can handle our copious 11G.
