You're not an academic, are you?

This is nothing to do with being an academic. What happens when, for instance, a novel is being published? The author sends it to the publisher, who sends back a copy with various changes, which the author then either accepts, accepts in some modified form, or rejects. This process is then iterated several times. I've not written a novel, but I know people who have reasonably recently, and they did it using the revision-tracking stuff in Word. Unquestionably a proper revision-control system would have been better (the critical thing is a visual diff tool).
