Many of my qualms about bitkeeper went away after perusing their site for some 
real data.  I see that a number of people use it for everything from their 
home directory files to their web pages.

IIRC, it reverts to GPL if the bitkeeper servers go away.

I think it all boils down to the logging messages and the worry over them.  We 
might be able to entice windows users to hack on rt that way, with a window 
gui for interaction with the repository.
