        Yet another plug for cvs-buildpackage. I never audit my diffs,
 yet I know for a fact that no junk gets into the diffs --
 cvs-buildpacakge does a rm -rf; and re exports a fresh set ;-)

        Possibly not very useful for huge packages like X; but should
 not be an issue for the vast majority o packages out there.

 So you're back... about time...
