It's now done in CVS.

As a side note, I'm beginning to like Eclipse even more...  to make this 
change, I basically did a couple of quick clicks to search the entire PEAK 
source for references to 'rwe' to decide on a strategy, then edit the two 
lines involved.  Then I said, "show me what I'm about to commit", and 
Eclipse offered to change to the "Team Synchronizing" perspective, which 
offers tools for exploring the diffs, including a button to commit the 
changes.  I type in the comment and I'm done.

Not that I didn't do those things before, it's just that the process was so 
seamless compared to the constant switching between editor windows and 
command shells that I used to do.  It just feels more...  natural, somehow.
