* New Features

** marking
*** marking directories should jump to just after the dir.
*** allow (un)marking directories at a time with the mouse.
*** marking with the mouse should not move point.

** liveness indicator

** indicate in docstring if the cmd understands the `b' prefix(es).

** call smerge-mode when opening CONFLICT files.

** after-parse-hook (to eliminate *.elc from Emacs' CVS repository :-)

** have vc-checkin delegate to cvs-mode-commit when applicable

** higher-level CVS operations

*** cvs-mode-rename
*** cvs-mode-branch

** module-level commands

*** add support for parsing 'modules' file ("cvs co -c")

*** cvs-mode-rcs2log
*** cvs-rdiff
*** cvs-release
*** cvs-import
*** C-u M-x cvs-checkout should ask for a cvsroot

*** cvs-mode-handle-new-vendor-version
	- checks out module, or alternately does update join
	- does "cvs -n tag LAST_VENDOR" to find old files into *cvs*

*** cvs-export
	(with completion on tag names and hooks to
	help generate full releases)

** allow cvs-cmd-do to either clear the marks or not.

** allow more concurrency: if the output buffer is busy, pick a new one.

** configurable layout/format of *cvs*.

** display stickiness information.  And current CVS/Tag as well.

** cvs-log-mode should know how to extract version info
	cvs-log-current-tag is a nop right now :-(

** write 'cvs-mode-admin' to do arbitrary 'cvs admin' commands

** cvs-mode-incorporate
	It would merge in the status from one ``*cvs*'' buffer into another.
	This would be used to populate such a buffer that had been created with
	a `cvs {update,status,checkout} -l'.

** cvs-mode-(i)diff-other-{file,buffer,cvs-buffer}

** offer the choice to kill the process when the user kills the cvs buffer.
	right now, it's killed without further ado.

** make `cvs-mode-ignore' allow manually entering a pattern.
	to which dir should it apply ?

** cvs-mode-ignore should try to remove duplicate entries.

* Old misfeatures

** cvs-mode-<foo> commands tend to require saving too many buffers
	they should only require saving the files concerned by the command

* Secondary issues

** maybe poll/check CVS/Entries files to react to external `cvs' commands ?

** some kind of `cvs annotate' support ?
	but vc-annotate can be used instead.

* probably not worth the trouble

** dynamic `g' mapping
	Make 'g', and perhaps other commands, use either cvs-update or
	cvs-examine depending on the read-only status of the cvs buffer, for

** add message-levels so that we can hide some levels of messages
