Ah, but I want to (for example) run a Debian-archive branch as well, in order
to keep Debian-archive-specific things (such as the current situation with
OpenSSL, which may or may not be mitigated with a license exception, as I
believe other dependanded-upon GPLd libraries need to carry the exception
too... I'll check this when it becomes relevant.)

I don't think it makes an awful lot of sense to keep this in the main
FreeRADIUS tree, since I pretty much expect to be (for the moment) the only one
using it.

Certainly this doesn't neccesitate the upstream repository to convert from CVS,
but it's certainly worth an investigation.

Of course Pacman didn't influence us as kids. If it did,
we'd be running around in darkened rooms, popping pills and
listening to repetitive music.
