By the way, we've been incrementally updating both trees and while in
theory the incremental could result in shorter paths with less detail,
so far the incremental export and the one pass export result in exactly
the same path:

slovax $ bk _eventpath 1.0 + | wc -l
slovax $ cd ../linux-2.5-cvs/linux-2.5
slovax $ rlog -r -N ChangeSet | grep revision
revision 1.8498

I've actually reimported the data in one pass and diffed the RCS files,
it's the same.

HPA, should we be mirroring the CVS tarballs to
