I did this some years ago, and it's still built into the glx2 script 
editor because I've been too lazy to pull it out. But it can suffer once 
again from the lack of uuid object ids. When Monte and I talked about 
this a couple of years ago (wow - it's been that long?) I thought the 
lcVCS idea sounded good if it would integrate well with the IDE. And 
since it does, version control really should just be there out of the 
box, and not as a third-party add-on.
