I think this is a bit premature.  Just because we are moving away from
using CVS as FreeBSD's scm doesn't mean CVS isn't a useful
general-purpose tool still.  For smaller repositories that don't need
fancier things like branches, CVS is quite useful and far lighter weight.

I could see moving csup out to ports, but not necessarily CVS.
