Did you not yet read Berliner's paper?  Did you not yet read Dick
Grune's descriptions of why he wrote the original CVS (early 1986)?

CVS was always an entirely a practical solution to very practical and
day-to-day problems.

It broke no really new ground.  Other tools have employed the same
parallel development methodology long before Dick Grune introduced his
CVS to the world.

There is nothing "academic" about CVS whatsoever.
