Ok, then let me ask this.  What is the smallest amount of work we can do 
now with the most gain then?

Is unifying CVS a real need?  Again, I think maybe in our ideal state we 
would but I refer back to my initial question: "What is the smallest 
amount of work we can do now with the most gain?"

In the end, as long as are moving towards the end-state of fully 
centralized site, I'll be happy.  We can take how ever many baby steps to 
get there we need to, I just wan to try flushing out what those steps are.

                    think about it, that might be a fair assessment."
