What would you like your directory structure to be?

CVS doesn't force or require a particular way of storing things. CVS simply
records the directory structure you create, so that at some later date, you
can re-create that snapshot exactly.

Then don't. If they're throwaway files, then just throw them away. Like any
clutter, don't let it accumulate - get rid of the cruft regularly. 'cvs -nq
update' will show you a list of the files CVS doesn't know about.

In that case, my reply is going only to the list.
