	As I understand it, for the average user c(vs)up and subversion
serve the same function using different methods (both in terms of
identifying what files need to be fetched and actually fetching
them).  At this level of discussion they are mutually exclusive.
	I have switched from csup to subversion for ports and docs.
After modest preparation it was essentially painless.
