Yes, I'm way off topic here, and I apologize -- but I've seen your
posts in the 'git' mail-list and you've experimented with Hg, so I
know you have your own opinions on version control systems.

Linus avoided rsync in favor of http in 'git' because he thinks
rsync is inherently unreliable.  I have *no* idea if he is right or
wrong in his opinions, but I figure you guys will favor me with your
own opinions on the subject.
