* You seem to have spent quite a bit of time figuring out how to import our
revision history from Subversion
* Having to learn a new version control system
* Having revision numbers that are more difficult to use in everyday conversation
* Having to maintain two revision control systems (mtn and svn)
* Long initial checkout time
* I don't like the web interface as much as ViewVC
* I have a feeling "meld ./" won't let me browse through my local repository
and view changes the way I can with Subversion
