    Can you be more specific?

    I was thinking about something like automatically tagged globally
    descrete patch sets. It would then be fairly simple to create a tool
    that simply scanned, merged, and checked in that patch as a set. Is
    something like this what you have in mind?

    Would having something like VIM or Emacs display a patch diff with
    providing keystroke level merge and unmerge get toward helpful for
    something like this, or is the need too complex to address that way?

    >4) distributed repositories
    Can you be more specific? (i.e. are you looking for merging,
    syncronization, or copies? In other words what do you need that CVS +
    rsync are unacceptable for?)

    >5) ability to exchange changesets by email
    That's a good one, and shouldn't be too bad if you like what I said for #2
