Good to hear.

Subversion would be an improvement imho.

Hey, I did say I like Gorm as a tool to easily build UIs. I just don't
like gorm files and their binary format, the occasional binary
incompatibility, the burden to localise (duplicate each gorm file or
manually override each label in the code, nice and simple...) and things
like that.

As I have nothing better to propose I'll shut up now :)
