The CVS-tip implementation is fundamentally broken and won't work even
for our internal uses.  I've not wasted time complaining about it
because I thought we were going to replace it.  If we can't find a
usable replacement then we're going to have to put a lot of effort
into fixing what's there.  On the whole I think the effort would be
better spent importing someone else's solution.
