Hmm... just to make things clear, the "weird" thing was told TO me, not by
me.  It just happens that I think the person who said it was actually right
on the issue (even if HE is the weird one IMHO).

At least for CVS, it has been a major help in my experience to never
register any autogenerated files on version control.  Although I *do* keep
history of all releases, so you could say I have some sort of version
control of everything (including all autogenerated files) as far as released
tarballs go.

I will read it, I am curious about what it says that could have such a
strong effect on you.  Maybe it can change my mind about the issue (but I
doubt it)...
