One unfortunate side-effect of using svn externals is it's tricky to  
track down via viewcvs - eg 
branches/BRANCH_2_1_X/src/blocks/forms/ has now disappeared, and it's  
not immediately apparent looking in 
cocoon/branches/BRANCH_2_1_X/src/blocks/ that forms is an external.

I don't quite know what the answer is (an update to viewcvs to make  
it indicate externals perhaps?), just raising it here in case anyone  
else gets confused ...

Andrew, off to read up on externals now.
