This is getting off topic.. but anyway.

I find svn to be close to cvs, just somewhat better. Still misses many
of the most important feature that darcs and arch (tla or bazaar) has.

I find bazaar and tla, both to be close to unusable due to not being
simple to use.  Darcs does SOO much better and has a very small
learning curve.  bazaar-ng is in development and is what I'm looking
forwards to most. It's a totally different thing than bazaar.  Ohh..
and it's cross platform also ... ohh.. and written in python :)
