More important: what is it good for? pm-utils is a project with only
a few files (until autocrappification came, which increased the number
significantly, but still _very_ small). Moving to git or something else
buys us not really anything, but it costs resources. And no, CVS was
never the bottleneck in pm-utils development.

I am strongly opposed to switching to anything else just because we can.
