Me too, me too... :)

I would like to do something similar, but I'm not skilled enough with
CVS to know what process I should use.  I was thinking of doing something
like this:

	- initial import of entire source tree
	- 'checkout' entire source tree into /.../src
	- build full list of files in /.../src
	- sup into /.../src
	- build new list of files in /.../src
	- 'cvs remove' whatever is missing
	- 'cvs add' anything new
	- 'cvs commit' to bring new changes into local repository

This _seems_ like it would allow me to get the latest SUP changes into
CVS without having to do a 'cvs import' every single day.  I'm not sure
how to handle local changes this way though.
