Is it really that hard to support cross-project interests? 

I mean, assuming that c++filt et al. are files that really are in the
mutual interest of several software development projects. it should be
possible to, toolwise, support it. If cvs can't handle multiple
repositories cross-project, that's a assumed deficiency of cvs as I
see it.

Are we really arguing because this is not supported by cvs or are we
arguing which one of the projects c++filt belongs to more? The answer
could very well be *both*, not *either*...
