IMO there *is* no correct way to add a top-level directory.  The
usual approaches:
  - The "cvs co -l -d dir ." dance recommended in this thread
  - "cvs import" of a tree containing only directories
  - a simple "mkdir $CVSROOT/foo" (which is my own preferred
all work, but they're all kludgy workarounds for the problem that
"make a new top-level directory" is an unaddressed case in the
CVS paradigm.

But all of those kludges work, and none of them is onerous, so
it's not worth the effort and added complexity of creating a new
"cvs add-module foo" subcommand to fill in the gap.

My Wine works.  However it crashes about half the time on startup.
Apparently their simulation of windoze API is getting too accurate.  :)
