I wonder how you'd feel about Bazaar, then, with its very smooth
operation of many different workflows, which can be chosen and/or
later changed as appropriate in each situation.

I've long been of the opinion that moving from Subversion to one of
{Bazaar, Git, Mercurial} is needed. That lists them in order of my
