indeed: generating the needed 'cvs add' and 'cvs remove' stuff is 
the truble, anyone good ideas? crawl trough the tree and get 
sensible info from a 'cvs status' to make solid choices on each 

or: maybe a silly idea, but if daedalus would allow for checking 
in a zip or jar of all the content in cvs (and unzipping that for 
us) instead of all the separate files...

this looses the merge and diff's of course (but that is in our 
own repository and based on the xml), and blows up the size of 
the 'publishing'- repository I guess, but it gives a view on 
'version of our site' in terms of a single consistent file to 
check out, and it requires less of a security and management 
hastle then...
