How is having a refuse file slowing down CVSup down best?  The fact is a 
category does not appear often and for those that know what they are doing 
it's been a week of:

Server message: Unknown collection "ports-dns"

This is the first time it's has taken this long for a new category to show 
up.  There is also the fact it's missing from the example files, which 
should be fixed prior to 4.9R (cross posting to -stable).  What needs to be 
done in such cases should be in the Porter's Handbook.  8-/
