I'm not importing it, but rather sup into a checked out tree, then
adding/removing/updating just the files that need to be.  This is much
faster than importing when supping often.  "cvs update" doesn't seem
to honour the -I flag, so there.  However, I agree it's not hard to
change the source for cvs.  I'm just thinking that it might be a bad
idea to use .a and .so for other files than libraries and shared
objects.  I have no problem handling this locally anyway, I just
imagine I'm not the only one that will step on this...
