The current arrangement is *way* easier for the infrastructure peeps. And
since they're the guys who have to do all the maintenance for us, I prefer
to give them a lot of leeway :-)

Note: CVS is *awful* when it comes to virtual hosting. Generally, you have
to use different repository paths (e.g. /home/cvs becomes /home/cvs/TLP or
something) for each TLP. And then you gotta go and reconfig viewcvs, and
then you have multiple 'avail' files, and then...  keeping all those CVSROOT
directories in sync would be a bear.

Cheers,
