[ng-dhtml] source control, revisited

My primary objection to svn is the 44 (count them, 44) packages
that it relies on. This results in the same problem as
with gnome or kde, which is that the chance is low
that on any given day you can build the entire thing
yourself from whatever package repository you choose.
Or if you do succeed, there is the likelihood that 
it'll screw with something else on your system that
may not want the version of apache2 or db4 or whatever
else that svn requires.

Yet somehow Perforce can manage to offer a single
downloadable executable client program....

Rants aside, I'm game :).
