Because with perforce, you can branch cheaply, and easily do a three
way integration to maintain your code against the FreeBSD source code...
If we all developed in CVS, then we'd have tons of broken features with
no one able to fix anything because Jim Bob's code is broken, but he
can't fix it because Mary Sue's code has issues, but of course Mary Sue
is having difficulty because Jim Bob's code in broken...
Think of perforce as the experimental FreeBSD...
