Why not?  That's the easiest way to get an existing source tree into CVS
regardless of whether it's third-party sources or your own.

Not so.  In this particular case (revisions and 1.2), one
revision is on the vendor branch and the other is on the trunk.  Part of
the vendor branch magic is to automatically switch from the vendor
branch to the trunk as soon as something is committed to the trunk, so
'cvs -nq up' *will* show that an update is required in this case.
