There is a huge opening for someone to make a good, reasonably priced
document management system. There's really nothing between the
products that would serve well for NASA and Boeing and the file
system.

VSS and CVS both treat MS Word documents as binary objects. They'll
keep versions but you'd better have a lot of disk space and diffs will
be difficult to get.

If you're using a text-based document format, then a code-focussed
version control system might be of use to you.
