I didn't bother to reply, because I advocated doing it in the first place. The
rest of the group seem to have gone into apathetic mode wrt CVS, so I say
stick it in. If the rest won't lead, they'll have to follow. Don't forget that
we have already agreed to do this.

Every time we dither like this it makes the job of switching to CVS harder.
If we could at least keep the CVS tree in line with the patches, then people
could switch over gradually. As it is, there's little incentive, because CVS
is always out of date.
