Do check with the infrastructure guys about this... the way that
committer CVS access-over-ssh is denied now for apr/apr-util, you can't
even "cvs up" an existing checkout to see what files you have changed:

cvs server: failed to create lock directory for `/home/cvs/apr' 
(/home/cvs/apr/#cvs.lock): Permission denied

so a good workaround for this is to switch the checkout to an anoncvs
checkout (I use "scvs" for this, recursive perl foo works too), and then
you *can* cvs up again to work out what needs to be rescued from that
working copy...
