If I understand you correctly, CVS doesn't work because there are lots
of autogenerated files.

These autogenerated files break merging, which is a very common
operation (merging from the "default" branch to the "current
configuration" branch is even supported by dpkg).

What I'd like to see is a dpkg hook which allows to commit default
configuration changes to a separate branch and merge them later into the
current configuration branch, supported by the versioning tool.

Current mail filters: many dial-up/DSL/cable modem hosts, and the
following domains: atlas.cz, bigpond.com, freenet.de, hotmail.com,
libero.it, netscape.net, postino.it, tiscali.co.uk, tiscali.cz,
tiscali.it, voila.fr, wanadoo.fr, yahoo.com.
