I don't mean to put us in the artists group down, but most of the "real"
artists didn't get CVs either, they cannot even *install* a GUI for CVS
without problems. In the end whether it is CVS or SVN that is confusing
them doesn't matter.

In addition the commands used by such people tends to be "login,
checkout" one time...and then "update and commit" - the really fearless
*might* even do a "add".

So don't worry about us dumb people :-)
