Yuval,

Thanks for the comments. I want to improve the git section. One thing 
that's easy with bzr is to just push your changes to a remote server, or 
a usb stick in one operation, even if the remote repo doesn't exist.

Using git this seems to be problematic. You can't use push unless there 
is a repo already there. You can create a blank repo ready to push into, 
but for the lazy this requires two steps instead on one. It is supposed 
to be possible to use git clone to create the repo and populate in a 
single step. However, I seem to fall into a syntactic black hole here 
and just end up creating a new repo locally.

Ian.
