While you're at it, can you also fix something else that's been
bugging me since I first started using CVS on Windows:
Whenever I do a "cvs update" (-dP implied) I get warnings about the
"Mac/IDE scripts" directory (this is using Cygwin):
$ cd "Mac/IDE scripts"; cvs update
? Hold option to open a script
? Insert file name
? Insert folder name
? Search Python Documentation
? Hack/Remove .pyc files
? Hack/Toolbox Assistant
cvs server: Updating .
cvs server: Updating Hack
cvs server: Updating Widget demos
The problem is, Windows doesn't allow multiple periods in file names,
and all these file names should end in "...".
Not using -d is not a reasonable option.
