The only problem with that is you lose often-useful information in the
output of cvs annotate (if the files have been around for any length
of time). I converted the ,v files of an entire project with a year's
worth of history, and encountered no problems. (I only did this for
the ,v files associated with ASCII files, of course).

That's a good idea!
