Nice presentation! You seem to have captured the current state of the 
distributed SCM world pretty well. I don't quite agree with every single 
opinion, and you omitted at least one worthy tool from the list (ArX), 
but those are minor quibbles.

It would be great if you could post this on the web somewhere so we 
could easily link to it.
