I myself prefer subversion, but we don't do a lot of exotic version
control stuff, so it's a non-issue.  I concur that CVS is fine.  If we
had to routinely incorporate a lot of development branches like some of
the busy open source projects, I might change my mind.  Also keep in
mind that some of us have some scripts built around checking out and
manipulating lwIP, so moving to a new vcs would be a pain.
