OK, then how about building (yet another) simple front-end for git?
It does a great job on the back end. If the front end is not simple
enough, build/extend just that.
A proposed Subversion vision and roadmap

This was exactly my experience. The (crappy) documentation I could find for SVN (I didn't bother with CVS, since it'd already been supplanted by SVN for a while by then) assumed I'd be using SSH or Apache to connect to the repository, and I found the SSH setup to be horribly ugly for a purely local workflow (I didn't even care to bother with Apache, that seemed a bit silly to me).
> boom, boom, and boom. Done.
Those commands are more than enough to get you started on a personal project, and it's fairly simple to pick up the other stuff as your needs expand (I was shocked at how simple branching was... I actually thought I had done it wrong since I'd read so much about how poorly SVN handles it). Plus, being able to make commits even when offline or when you don't want to make them public yet (but you don't want one massive commit containing a crap load of work all over the code base) is easy as hell with git (you just commit and don't push!).
