No, I read it, but I thought you were completely and utterly out of touch with reality. Everyone I know who uses source control has multiple branches; if nothing else, you branch when you tag so that you have somewhere to work on maintenance fixes separately from your feature improvements. All that the difficulty in merging that SVN and CVS impose (but other centralised systems don't - this isn't a natural advantage of DVCSes) does is ensure that I'm more likely to make the sort of human error that I mention in my post.
Clearly, you did not bother to read my post; you just saw a counterexample to your point, and decided to play hurt.
