On second thoughts, there is fairly significant drawback in using
the CVS repository. The release process involves making some commits
as well as creating a tag, and we would want all of that in our git
repo. If we use the CVS repository, we'll have to import those changes
back from CVS into git.

I'm starting to lean towards doing everything in git, and fixup any
problem if necessary.
