Yes, Subversion would be much nicer. Although a rename is still a  
delete followed by an add, the capability of following history  
through renaming is worth millions in flexibility and refactoring  

For what is worth, I've been testing the new Xcode 2.1 support for  
storing bundles in Subversion today with some old projects and that  
was the last piece I needed for a full repository conversion. It has  
worked without a glitch so far.

Community-driven refactoring? Nice.

The day that Xcode supports full refactoring and full plug-ins--model  
editor, view and editor extending, for example--I'll be so happy that  
I'm sure it will hurt.
