Uhm... there's the need to dl the installer, but I'd say it's not 
klunky. BUT, different people like different installation schemes (I'd 
use .zips if possible (hint hint apheX ;))

Anyway, just if you people are secretly interested while displaying 
public dismay: http://www.jester-depot.net/websvn/ and free svn checkout 
access from http://www.jester-depot.net:8080/jkblender

What I really liked about this was that branching took only a few 
seconds, and merging was also dead easy. Even reorganising the 
repository was easy, no need for voodoo.

Anyway, in the end I don't care what is used, as long as there is a way 
to get work done... (not that I've been that active lately :] )



ps. ... forgot what I wanted to ps about after getting into 
inter-telepathic discussions. Had to do something with svn and cvs 
coexistence, but the original thought was much better than what now 
flies around.
