    I would like to have cvsup, but we would need the
    modula-3 libraries and I am rather loath to include
    them on the live CD.

Fwiw, I recently got the idea that I would pay grad student here at RPI to rewrite just the client-part of cvsup in C++. He just got his Phd, and he has his eye on a specific job that won't be available for a few more months, so he'd love to have some short-termish project. Actually, I started out thinking a ruby version would be cool, but he has done a lot of C++ programming and hadn't even heard of ruby...

But once I got serious about sizing up the task, it seemed
pretty likely that I'd run out of spare money before he could
get it all working.  But I still keep thinking that maybe
I should give it a shot, and see how far he could get.
