The question was why one particular VCS was being specified, and whether
a whole class of existing tools could do the job.

So is there anything about one particular VCS that recommends it to this
job? Or can any of the big three DVCSen do the job?
It should go without saying, but apparently not: I'm perfectly
comfortable in my capacity to select a VCS tool without needing to
poo-pooh others. I ask “why that one for this job, why not the others?”
because I want to know the answer, not as some kind of rhetorical
 I find the “XYZen” plural useful when the initialism ends with an
“S”. Certainly “DVCSen” reads better to me than “DVCSs”.
