*ALL* my packages come from local CVS, including the one I am
upstream on, None of them contain CVS dirs. Indeed, saying you are
keeping sources in CVS is no excuse for not following guidelines laid
out in CVS docs, even.

I have not found that to be the case. cvs-buildpackage takes
marginally more time than dpkg-buildpackage, but not perceptibly so.
Sounds like you are saying you are too lazy to do the right thing.
