I'm not sure if this belongs in EVS group or EVS-dev, so please let me know 
if it belongs more in the dev discussion.

I'm wondering if EVS is able to do away with some limitations that I 
encounter daily with CVS.  Things that would be nice to find in EVS would 
- tag names to be unique within a branch name-space only.  No need for tags 
to be unique across an entire project
- tag / branch names to include all characters, including spaces and 
- Ability to add comments / description to branches / tags
- Merging of renamed/relocated files to reflect the new name/location in the 
- LDAP authentication and / or SSO

I don't know if some of these suggestions breaks backwards-compatibility 
with existing third-party integrated systems, but thought I would at least 
raise the questions.
