Well, we cannot do builds thta way because we work in Delphi and I
know of no way to build automatically on the server...
Also we do commits at the end of day even if the code at the moment
does not build, so it would not be a good test anyway.

Concerning the deal breaker, I felt that since these guys on the
embedded development side have not used integrated SC before (they
used command line cvs or WinCvs) and the plugin would behave in this
strange non-concurrent way I decided against it.

The only benefit I can see is really that an integrated SC could keep
track of new files...
