After having some trouble reintegrating the patch, I had an idea.

Have you given any thought to switching to a distributed RCS such as
Darcs? It seems like it would match the development style much better,
not to mention make it easier to track down problems such as the one
that killed Allegro recently. You could still have an anonymous CVS
gateway for those that don't wish to install new software, of course.

(I'm in the middle of tracking down that bug via binary search. It
seems likely that it'll take a while; having changesets (and locally)
would at least speed things up.)
