non-proportional - yes.

I don't know enough about any of the systems but CVS, so I can only
comment on this column.

 WJ> Format of action attribute: [get|put|edit]

This is not good enough for current cvs usage. Most of the time I use
command="update -d -P" which is not really equivalent to get - that
would be command="checkout" I think.

I don't know why writable for VSS is in the actions column, I would
have thought it would map to cvs -r command which is "readonly" and
doesn't have a corresponding attribute in the task yet.

cvs's tag is both, version and label - maybe allow both attributes and
map them to "cvs command -r tag"?

What does force do?

includes and excludes could be useful for "cvs commit" or "cvs diff".

config should be available in cvs as well. "cvs -b bindir" would serve
the same purpose ssdir does in vssget.
