All of the points made in that page are right on.  I can go on to say more:

- The modules database isn't versioned, which can affect reproducibility
- The *info files accept a comprehensive list of sources on their command
  lines, limiting their scalability.  (After a branch merge on a very large
  project, the command line buffer of the shell invoking the *info file
  can overflow, causing breakage.)
- Triggers registered via the modules database are sometimes persistent,
  causing suprises after modifications.
- The history file grows without bound, and can't be managed in any natural

I'm sure I can go on if I think about this for a few minutes...

Someone brought up a site on another mailing list about CVS and its
limitations and was citing this as a reason to not use CVS...what do you
all think about this?  Some of this stuff I have personally witmessed
(i.e. large binary file problem, no directory versioning)  but I'm
curious as to others opinions...
