Does This Mean We Can Have Automagic Builds?

(If not, it may be better to upload my diffs to the CVS repos. in addition
to the normal stuff).

Also, I have a suggestion for "dupload". The option to do something like this
instead of ftp'ing or scp'ing the .orig.tar.gz to master:-

ssh master -c "wget ftp://download.cyclic.com/pub/cvs/cvs-1.10/cvs-1.10.tar.gz \
	-O .../Incoming/cvs_1.10.orig.tar.gz"

This would save many people a lot of time/bandwidth, I think.
