I suppose I wouldn't really have any objection to this if it appears
most convenient to the folks who have to use the files.

Hadn't even heard of it before.  It looks like it is trying to do what
we want.  Have you tried to build CVS with it?

Windows still has support for DOS, and I'm fairly certain that the
command line version of CVS won't be making much use of Windows-specific

suprised if that won't build just from what I heard when I used to lurk
on the Autoconf lists.
