Indeed, it will make life a lot easier for external contributors.
Right now you have to pull down the whole whopping great SRPM each
time. A 'cvs update' will save folks from having to do that.
There's still a lot of stuff going on internally to try and make all of
that happen. I wish we had something more than "stay tuned!" to say,
but sadly, I don't think we do yet.  Cristian and a bunch of others are
working at making this happen asap.

On the contrary, if the patches are sane, I'm looking forward to it 8)
