Also useful to get an overview of a changeset.

My current opinion is that no DVCS is worth it as long as it requires us to 
split some things up instead of using subdirectories like SVN. Subdirectories 
are already set up, easy to use, don't force unnecessary decisions, handle 
file moves better and probably have some other advantages over any kind of 
split projects.
Not using the file system's capabilities and semantics [they are well-known 
and work] is Wrong IMHO.
Unfortunately subdirectory support also seems to be really hard to implement 
in DVCSes - maybe one or more will pull it off anyway, we'll see.

Flint Paper is insane. I really respect that.
