Linus isn't saying that CVS and Subversion have fixable bugs or missing
features. It's not about the code.

He is saying that they solve the wrong problem. The Subversion team wants to
solve Problem A, and Linus wants to solve Problem B. No amount of code will
turn the solution to Problem A into a solution for Problem B. Bothering the
Subversion team with code addressing Problem B will only irritate them, since
they're working on Problem A.

The right way to handle differing goals is to start a different project. That's
what he did.

Don't be confused by the labels. Source Code Management means different things
to different people, and there isn't always much overlap in how each person
defines it. Ships and airplanes are both 'vehicles', but that doesn't mean that
a few changes will turn one to the other.
