Just out of curiousity, is there any reason why unstable can't use the
fortnightly snapshots, rather than some arbitrary date-pulled CVS that
we have to distribute ourselves?  Those snapshots are also available in
seperated tarballs, so the text will never be out-of-sync, and we
won't have to _assume_ anything about someone who might just have
happened to have glanced at the unstable book.
