Pls let us know when ability to download from CVS is likely
to happen, for Ocaml itself (since I use the CVS version),
and also for packages which choose to expose their CVS versions.

This would be a major plus I think, since so many packages
(including Ocaml) are in flux, and bleeding edge developers
can't really use GODI properly unless they can specify CVS
for key libraries. The most important probably being one's
OWN library under development. This makes new libraries
available early, and updates available instantly,
without any need to 'release' a new version to GODI.

Oh and of course GODI itself can upgrade itself from
CVS .. the total result will not be particularly
stable, but it will allow a significant amount
of *early* cooperation between developers.

Side note: I am close to *abandoning* tarball releases
for the development sources of Felix and simply
providing a single Makefile with  'download_from_CVS' 
and 'Upgrade_from_CVS' targets... saves messing around
uploading tarballs all the time .. I'll still use
tarballs for stable releases though.
