Sorry, Derek, I should have  figured such a thing was already in the docs
somewhere. I don't know if it's that it's not mentioned enough or that
there's just simply too much information out there and stuff gets missed.
It's been a long time since I got my cvs account... Is this linked to in the
email that gets sent out? If not, it should be.
