I said it before and I say it again: Tonel was flawed from the very start
nobody listened what Dale had to said. Instead, the Pharo community
declared it as their new default, and here we are. It's not Jakob's job to
port Tonel to Squeak, yet he worked on it in his spare time. If you don't
what it does to your timestamps and author initials, please complain to the
designers of Tonel. And no, they are probably not subscribed to this

Fileouts cause a lot of merge conflicts in Git (even if there are none in
actual code). This makes it rather cumbersome to use it in Git. Maybe the
Cuis community has fixed some of these issues?
