iiuc, it's been a rather long time coming ... and the devs are rather top-notch

assuming that separation is robust, i've mused "wouldn't it be nice"
if this framework could be adapted for any/all of the the scm tools.

heck, i (now) *prefer* to use Hg, but i still *have* to use/access
svn/cvs/monotone/git/etc ...

i'd bet that there will be a wide range of opinions on this.

i can tell you that, e.g., having used all of the svn "apps", the only
solution that "feels right" is the finder-integrated SCPLugin.

it's also not lost on me that (some of) the svn devs think it's
useful/better enough, that they undertookk the development -- even
given what else is out there.
