well one thing it seems I can not do is use the directory as a module
i.e. in the modules file
proj_source             proj_rootdir/proj Source
proj_source             proj_rootdir/proj\ Source
proj_source             "proj_rootdir/proj Source"

none of the above will work.
I get the following for the above 
cvs [server aborted]: there is no repository /CVSROOT/proj_rootdir/proj
cvs [server aborted]: there is no repository /CVSROOT/proj_rootdir/proj\
cvs [server aborted]: there is no repository /CVSROOT/"proj_rootdir/proj

server 1.10.7
client 1.10.8

looks like I am going to at least have to get rid of spaces in the dir names,
unfortunately the above dir is not the only one with spaces... time to pull out
bash, and sed :{

I'd crawl over an acre of 'Visual This++' and 'Integrated Development
That' to get to gcc, Emacs, and gdb.  Thank you.
