I do not think it is a good idea to have multiple view* software things
installed (I'm not going to install another one and have twice the
maintenance load). We can however take the best one. I have no idea
which one that is. I'd guess 'viewvc' as it is more generic (we probably
have to have a view* on for a while and using the same
software ensures it will be easier on us admins), but IIRC viewvc
doesn't have the annotate function either.

I do not have time to figure which one is the best. If someone could
shortly list the differences between all those view* I'd appreciate it.
I'm especially interested if the view*
 * is secure (track record and the way it is written/designed)
 * the software is actively maintained
 * what features we would not have anymore compared to the viewcvs on
 * if the URL structure is close enough so I can redirect /viewcvs/ to 
   /viewwhatever/ and know it will usually do the right thing
 * easily able to switch (e.g. still uses same bonsai db structure)
 * if it had that annotate option
