i agree in principle but i'm concerned about backwards compatibility. i 
suppose an argument might be made that it shouldn't break compatibility 
except for people using the RSS code but i'm very committed to 
backwards compatibility and so i'd need a lot of persuading. i would 
not support moving them if it meant moving up a major version number.

i'd be interested to hear other opinions on this.

i'd say the usual practice at apache is to leave the history where it 
is and think 'if only we were using subversion'...

please never change any of the repository files. if you ever need to 
(for example, if CVS barfs a lock) the right thing to do is always to 
ask infrastructure.
