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...
