I tried this with (so far) no apparent success.  I ran cvs_chroot as

    cvs_chroot :pserver:anonymous@cvs.python.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/python

It warned me about some directories that didn't match the top level
directory.  "No problem", I thought.  I figured they were for the nondist
portions of the tree.  When I tried a cvs update after logging in to the
SourceForge cvs server I got tons of messages that looked like:

    cvs update: move away dist/src/Tools/scripts/untabify.py; it is in the way
    C dist/src/Tools/scripts/untabify.py

It doesn't look like untabify.py has been hosed, but the warnings worry me.
Anyone else encounter this problem?  If so, what's its meaning?
