As one of the mailing list moderators for non-subscribers (subscribers
aren't moderated) I laughed to tears at reading that one.  I only wish
that were true!

I am compelled to add:
L) Fewer people use CVS these days now that newer version control
systems have become available and in popular use.

Note that I said "newer" not "better".  Others are certainly newer.
But that doesn't mean that each do not have their own strengths.

People attracted to bright shiney obj... (Squirrel!) ... are not as
likely to be asking questions about CVS because they are more likely
to be drawn into one of the newer ones and ask questions there.  But I
still use CVS on a regular basis and find it quite useful.
