And time :-)  The more files and directories, the longer it takes
to do CVS operations of course.  Same with tags, in theory, but
their impact is so low you can probably ignore them.

That said, people use CVS for some *huge* trees, like at least a
couple of the open-source BSD-UNIX projects.  So it can be done;
whether you want to is another question.

Re number of files, I was going to say: "as far as I know, CVS
scales linearly".  But then I realized, I don't really know at
all; I've just been assuming.  Does O(n) sound right?
