A slightly different point of view - I've not used any of the RCS
systems until recently.  I started out with bzr since I wanted to work
with Launchpad, and I'm finding it simple and very useable.  To boot,
the documentation is first rate, and not necessarily written for
developers who already know 6 different RCS systems :-)

You talk about scripts being important to you - it seems to me the
distributed abilities of bzr (or git or Mercurial, although I've not
used them) would be handy to let you keep your repositories in several
locations where you need them and keep things in sync.

Try bzr
