Well, if Bron can spot bugs and blatant omissions in my patches and I can 
spot bugs in his code, then peer review seems to be working. It would 
probably work faster if we were all running Cyrus CVS rather than our own 
private source trees. I hope to get there about this time next year.

There shouldn't be any embarrassment about broken code in CVS, so long as 
we are able to generate a separate branch for emergency bug fix releases. 
At the end of the day CMU's CVS repository is the canonical reference. 
Trying to track third party patches (and patches to patches) is hard work.
