BTW, for those with backwards compatibility concrens, there's an easy upgrade 
path - to use the new data
transfer methods new hook files would be set up.  Say, *info2 rather than 
*info.  Then if the *info2 had a
match for the directory, CVS could ignore the *info file.

In five years or so the *info code could probably even be disabled.  :)
