As long as the test -d was in place, I'd trust user's to run sanity.sh

if you'd like to send a patch with test cases testing various CVS
commands when the Attic is empty, I'd likely commit that.  Of course,
if the Attic went away when empty, I suppose only the test that it was
deleted would be necessary.  This would be less code in the test suite.

I don't know about you, but I typically only run the tests in the
default /tmp directory which is typically either a ufs (which is the
filesystem type I normally use for the repository anyway) or a memory
filesystem. I suppose we should encourage folks to run the tests in the
filesystems they are going to use...

True, I was thinking that potential users might think of that, but docs would likely be in order if we really wanted that...

...except that as soon as I manage to finish this Autotest conversion, testing will occur in the build tree, by default. I forget how easy it is to move wihtout moving the build tree.

Does the Autotest rambling make me sound like a broken record yet?  :)

"My father often told me,
We have servants and machines
in order that our will may be carried out
beyond the reach of our own arms.
Machines are more powerful than servants
and more obedient and less rebellious,
but machines have no judgement
and will not remonstrate with us
when our will is foolish,
and will not disobey us
when our will is evil.
In times and places where people despise the gods,
those most in need of servants have machines,
or choose servants who will behave like machines.
I believe this will continue
until the gods stop laughing."
