Yes. The extra rcs features we get are; keeping the site images with the 
actual website code so if image dimensions change we can still recover 
previous versions and for example if someone uploads an inappropriate 
image we can just do 'bzr revert' to take the directory back to its 
previous state. No doubt there are plenty more good examples too.
