How you construct your sandbox doesn't necessarily have anything to do
with how the upstream repository is laid out. The only real downside
(and there are ways around this) is that you couldn't do a "cvs update
-d" at the top level of "winsup" and have it update everything.
And, also, incidentally, the other thing that is being contemplated is
moving to a more modern SCM like subversion or git.
