So, I've used a number of version control systems, proprietary and
Free, and I can't say there's ever been one with features I couldn't
do without.

Considering that kernel development work went on for N years without
BitKeeper, it's obvious that it _can_ be done. What is it about
BitKeeper that's so great?
