Everyone who tries converting freebsd's cvs repository to joe-random-RCS
attempts to import the entire source tree as a single project.
Honestly, it covers too broad a spectrum. Separate these projects into
the cvsup collections: src-sys, src-bin, src-lib, etc.. You won't be
able to simply tag a single branch into a full system release without a
wrapper script to handle your collections, but that's a small price to
pay for the added robustness, separation of privilege, and smaller-scale
potential for conflict.
In fact, even src-bin may be too broad, and it may make sense to have
separate projects within the collection hierarchy. This would, at
least, make reparenting projects (say, from src-bin to src-usrbin)
