Do you REALLY think you won't need glue for the $1000/seat software?  Or a
full time administrator?  Or 6 months of configuration time?

It seems like you took into consideration, the hidden costs with getting
CVS integrated into your environment, but you failed to take those same
costs with the other tool.

Sure, while CVS is free, the TCO is still there.  But it is a HELL of a lot
lower TCO than many other packages.
