Hmm.  Worse case, I can just run dos2unix (or whatever it is) on the
offending files.  Not that big of a deal (just so long as I can recurse
through the directory tree)

Hi David,

CVS uses RCS on the backend, so you should be fine just
moving the files.

The only thing I can think of to watch out for is the end-of-line
convention difference between UNIX and DOS ( and Windows )..

Maybe someone more knowledgable than me on that subject can
comment. I usually just move UNIX -> UNIX.
