The files which sup gets for you are more-or-less independent of
those which where shown the the CVS update reports; sup should
get you *at least* those files listed, but may get more.

trust the output of 'sup -v', if you're trying to figure out what
got updated.

If you're using those CVS update reports to get files via anon-ftp,
because you can't use sup, well...  "i told you it was a bad idea..."
