Please don't do anything in our cvs repos if you don't understand what 
you are doing. the fact you use a windows graphical frontend tells me 
you most likely don't. So don't do it.

We had more than one accident happen from inexperienced users and this 
typically leads to strange effects with project.module and a lot of time 
that people like me need to spend to fix it.
