"should" != "current state of things"  :-)

The CVS repositories aren't opened up like that on SF, AFAIK. So yes,
"should" is quite true, but that doesn't help us now :-(  As Barry said...
unless SF changes that policy, then we just deal with it.

We could make an SF admin request to torch the nondist/nondist directory
from the repository.
