I actually want to put my foot in my mouth here a bit. First, you are
right in that they probably belong in some download directory and not
CVS. Also, csup and cvs are smart enough to do some compression during
sending anyway if you want it to.

It would seem smart to have versioned patchsets kept outside of CVS.
If anyone wants to work on doing this and implementing it, that would
be awesome.
