while i understand version control was created because it was needed , and it works well
I may be wrong but doubt any one need's /want's to see/work on my "code"
And while i could use something like git ect to track my progress or not as the case may be
For whatever im mucking about with
Its an extra step in the "think ,type ,test" 'work flow'
Some kind of vfs or similar could let me or any one else who wanted to continue mindlessly bashing the key's ect
With out any extra step ( other than setting up whatever to keep progress log )
Granted ether pad is no file-system but it has got continuous edit tracking (i think in the form of "Operation Transformation" algo )
*eg : http://beta.etherpad.org/test-ep/timeslider#0
(just press play )
*note the beta is not working in at least one old/ageing browser .
