I'm trying to work out a method to automatically generate snapshots if
anything changes over the course of a day; however, I need to work out
some security logistics -- as the CVS server is open for all free software
authors to use, I can't just trust the code, and one of the prep stages
includes running autoconf ... which runs user m4 macros.  m4 doesn't have
a 'safe' mode either.  I may or may not need to run 'configure' in order
to get a distribution tarball, which is even worse.

I'll have _something_ available soon, but I can't say for sure what.  Check
the CVS homepage http://cvs.cleveland.lug.net for announcements, as I don't
want to post everything about the CVS server to this list.
