As this is directed at least partially at me, let me say that I mean no
disrespect. Mark and Digium and Nufone and Brian West et al. have done
a lot of good work and taken things a long way. Congratulations are
definitely in order.

But on the other hand, I have a diverging local source tree. I know 
others have diverging local source trees. I know that people are kludging
together shell scripts to grab source from CVS and patches from here
and there to create their build tree. From that perspective, I see
a real problem.
