I agree with Costin that the downside of the proposal is that any
revolutionary must be an expert in CVS.  To help with this, we should
make sure that there exists a detailed document describing how to manage
multiple branches with CVS.  We can call it "A Revolutionist's Guide". 

I'm not sure if I agree with Costin's proposal for same-branch
different-package development.  I'm worried that won't scale well and
may cause dependency problems if people aren't careful.  But I do like
its simplicity!  If I were working alone that's how I'd manage my own
revolution (and how James recently said he did his with Tomcat).
