Btw, I rarely use -d since it can be dangerous.  It's fine in the above
example, of course, but if you use it at the devo level you'll be checking
things out all day.

I actually have a script that iterates over every top-level directory
that I currently have checked out.  It cd's to the directory and *then*
does a 'cvs update -d'.

I'm sure that you know this but I'm mentioning this for the archives.
