Tim, I think your conclusion is still to "hasty". Yes, SVN has
problems, but like the other systems I am confident that it can
be made to work.

I am sure that we could find ways to screw-up darcs also. :) There
are quite a few projects do use darcs, including Sage and it seems
to be popular with lisp projects:

But I would *not* recommend that we switch to darcs now - even
though I do think it is a better source code control system.

I think we need to resolve the problems Tim is having with SVN
and then get on with what we have been planning for the last
few months with Axiom Silver on SVN.
