Personally I also wouldn't be all too suprised to find that a certain company in Redmond has quietly passed something under the table to our man of the moment Larry to persuade him that it is not in his best interest to continue supporting a free BK for the Linux Kernel.
What better way to chop the legs out of Linux Development than to target the tools used to support that development. It makes simple sense to me and it explains better why using closed source tools to support Great Open Source Software will always be a dangerous exercise.
It always leaves you open to Subversion without you even knowing that it is happening.
All in all a useful learning experience I would say and one I certainly hope people are paying attention to.
