Each version of GUI will use the cvsnt version it is written for,
generally. By the time a Tortoise is released for 2.5.04 it'll be using
either switch depending on what Torsten wants to do with it. Clients
which use their own code like eclipse don't even have the issue.
I've never seen a completely seamless GUI for any system.. SmartCVS is
pretty good if you haven't tried it.
Really, there are so many clients out there that it's not something that
really factors into it.. and there are as many different ways of
interacting with a repository as there are clients. Everyone has their
favourites - the key to making it all work is at the server side.
