CVS would be overkill for the MiNTLib.  I don't receive that many patches
that it would pay out.  I will have a look though and may give it a
try.  But I never seriously worked with CVS so far and I will need some
time to get used to it.  Having separate branches for production and
development would definitely be helpful, even on a loopback-only network.
