If this is JHB's thing, and he's got it in P4, wouldn't it be
better to let him take the lead and coordinate this than doing it
in some way you find convenient? I'm not sure that having 3 places
where the history of this file will be is appealing, especially if you
are making this fork in CVS for purely an ephemeral manner. I do not
find that a very attractive solution.
