Although it gets the most important feature of any piece of software
completely, utterly and unforgivably wrong: The user interface.  (Well,
certainly tla does, I don't know if the interface itself is specified by
the general Archiness of things.)  It's inconsistent, ugly, long-winded,
unintuitive, and will wear out your hyphen key in a mater of minutes.

I'm sure it's a very competent version control system past that though.
I think the problem is that most people don't get that far.

What about Monotone?  I've not looked at it at all recently, but it used
Lua quite extensively if I recall, and has some of the distributed
features that seem fashionable these days.
