Ok whats horrible about subversion ? I actually quite like it, and it's 
strange eccentric way of updating directory structures ... and deleting 
files... and that you can only checkout a folder and not a single file, 
which is fine for source code...

But still. It's ok , it's just a tad 'special'.

You don't tell it to do something, you coax it into doing it, often in a 
sneaky and underhanded way.
