I found VFS when I wrote the CVSSource, but left it since there was 
nothing CVS-related there. However, I found it interesting to write a 
CVS provider for VFS, but the architecture seemed to me heavy compared 
to what's needed to write a Source. I also didn't have the necessary 
time to dig a lot.
