If that's the case, that there are only a few defined things you can 
get from CVS, then CVS is much more limited than any other version 
control system I've used, since they all let you get as little as a 
single file at a time.

I did say that if it was possible to do this, then just do that and 
everything is taken care of.  If not, then just having the two 
side-by-side would be acceptable as well.  It seemed that if it were 
possible to do this, then someone would have done it by now instead 
of us sitting around discussing it to death.
