I third.

CVS is THE DE-FACTO standard.  It is used by ALL significant
open source software efforts.

The ONLY version control I would accept in IDL would
be hooks in IDLDE to work with CVS.

In my opinion, it is a MS conspiracy that products like
VC++ and Borland have hooks to commercial software
like Perforce and MS version control, but not CVS.   Then again.... by
the time
of this writing they ARE supporting CVS...  I dunno.
