You seemed to be implying that a Lisp network-capable revision control
program was needed in order to facilitate work.  An all new Lisp
revision-control program is not a program in the critical path.
In my opinion CVS already works pretty well.

But given a persistent distributed object system the revision control
problem would be pretty much solved.
