I started to, but couldn't get it to import our existing RCS (!) files
sanely.  And I have largely the same problems with it that you do, and
while I have a good idea of how to work around most of them, I don't
really have the time to create the necessary wrappers and other things
to make it acceptable as a replacement for our current setup.

(And I'm still seriously bummed that the license for Perforce that I
worked so hard on getting freed up for general university use turned out
to be academic-use-only, so I can't use it for infrastructure.  *grump*)
