I will add my vote to switching to subversion. We have been using svn
for our bugzilla development and are very pleased with the
It also makes merging branches a breeze. That is how we were able to get
the rc3 code merged into our rc2 customizations. 
Besides, svn supports directory changes. Need I say more :)
