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.
