Well, exactly, it's a much larger list, and hence a much larger
maintenance effort. If it were near-zero cost to maintain then
I'd be okay with it ... but right now, it seems most reasonable
to expect people to do "make distclean" before they try a "cvs diff".
In practice, you have to be mighty savvy to do "cvs update"s without a
"make distclean" beforehand --- I don't ever risk it myself; the extra
machine cycles for a full rebuild are way cheaper than my time to debug
an incomplete rebuild. So I have little concern for the "cvs diff"
