And if VC becomes as good as PCL-CVS for CVS, it doesn't mean that it is
ready for competing with alternative packages specifically made for
other VCS.

The issue is that popular VCS nowadays are different enough that
providing a single, efficient interface that covers all of them is
*very* hard, if possible at all. You can do a UI as good as PCL-CVS and
psvn.el are for CVS and svn, respectively. But something that covers svn
and git, or even bzr and git...
