The ChangeSet file has many csets and we only capture around 1/2 of
them in CVS ChangeSet file. The extra ChangeSets are grouped together
with the merge cset where they were added to the path we are
recording. That is correct, but it is not the whole story.

What happens is that most csets modifiy a non overlapping set of
files. So while we didn't get every delta to the ChangeSet file, we
did capture >90% of the actual changes to the source files in the
