Can I presume you have a really good reason why your source code directory
*must* be named "cvs"? I suppose importing a third-party source code would
be one reason, but that's the only one I can think of. Maybe I'm just not
imaginative enough.

In any case, I'd like to examine this feature a little before it gets
committed to the project, because I could foresee a host of problems,
depending on how it's implemented.

Can you explain how this feature works? For example, when do you specify it?
On checkout? What happens after that - do you have to use the same -D
command each time you issue any subsequent commands? Sounds a little
error-prone, if that's the case.
