	I would personally be very irritated if I found RCS missing
	from a NetBSD system. I also understand sup is faster than
	anoncvs if you do not need to keep local changes.

	On the other hand I would nt mind uucp moving into a package,
	but I'm sure that would in turn annoy someone else.

	I'd be very happy to find cvs included in the base system.
