slightly OT - differencing and version control

Anybody out there working on a team of developers? If so, how do you  
handle file version control with your Rev stack files? I've been  
using MagicCarpet (which has worked very well for me; thanks Chipp).  
But up until now my company has only had myself and, at most, one  
other developer, and MagicCarpet has met our needs. But we're getting  
to a point where we need something a little more robust. Something  
that will preferably allow multiple concurrent checkouts of files,  
and then merge differences as they're checked back in.

Is there something like this that even exists? I realize since Rev  
stacks contain binary data it makes things a bit more difficult. Is  
there anything out there that can handle binary files this way? If  
not, could something like this be created with Rev? If so, how  
difficult would it be?
