It may work, but it doesn't ``scale'' to dozens of machines, and you
still have to do merging when upstream files (the ones in the FreeBSD
repository) change.  It's not particularly hard to merge with CVS, if
you consider the src/etc files of FreeBSD a ``vendor branch'', but it's
not exactly a fun ride either.
