In most places and projects I have worked people have been very frightened
of using branches but after a few hours tutution and explantation most come
round to using them. It makes a lot of sense and as Paul said it is a BIG
advantage to have all the changes in 1 repository as it makes reviewing
the history simple with cvs diff.
