Glad to hear I wasn't the only one who was confused.
I am wondering about bug fixes though. Was it easier
or harder in CVS to apply a fix across multiple branches?
I know we're not worrying about docs yet, but the need for
replicating changes in multiple repositories is already
straining an over-taxed docs department.
