Ok, you're right, that was dumb.  :)  The biggest problem from mixing the 
trees came from something similar to what I described in my next note, where 
a "cvs tag" at the top of the tree would abort if I didn't have write access 
(which I don't) to any one of the other repositories that I checked-out from. 

Hmmm... perhaps that's all if it after all: can "tag" be told to ignore 
directories I don't have write-access to?

Thanks for the response!
