I've been wondering if it's a good idea to include CVS directories in source
tars. I compared a set of module checkouts (basesrc etc...) to a unified
checkout of 'src', and there's some interesting differences at the top
level CVS info. I don't have enough CVS experience to know if that is bad
for someone trying to run a CVS command on the extract source tar, and
that question seems to me to be the deciding factor for whether such info
is useful to be in the srctars.
