Two reasons. First is the bandwith requirement. Some people involved
may not be close to the central CVS server.
Second is that DBS style packages do not work well with CVS at all.
Checking in tar files sucks.
I'll try and put things together and once I have something perhaps I
can get added to the sourceforge project so I can check it in.
I agree with your analysis of the three kinds of patches.
