They are config files for the FreeBSD base system.  They are not
config files *for* cvsup.  Ie, the CVSup program *itself* does not
need those files to exist for any reason.

And if csup winds up in the base system, we'll just move those
example files back in /usr/share/examples.  Looking at the CVS logs,
those files have been in that directory since sometime around 1996.
It seems pointless to move them *now*, just as we are making some
real progress towards having a cvsup-ish program in the base system.

Or at least, I hope we are!
