Absolutely it can! Why the hell am I doing this, anyway? Every
decision I make is based on having Lampadas usable by Gnome and other
projects, not just the LDP.

Yes. Lampadas will have CVS integration.

It needs its own CVS tree, from which it reads and to which it
writes. I haven't coded any CVS stuff yet because I don't have a CVS
test tree to work against, and I'm not debugging against a live tree.
Can you guys provide one? A side benefit, but an important one, is
that we could start adding the Gnome docs into it right now and have
the data ready to go when the code is.

I plan to make CVS either auto or manual, configurable. Some projects
might want to manually review changes before they are committed.

It looks like I'll be going to beta around end of July or so, FYI.

That is the Cauldron of Ceridwen
That is the holy grail of immortality.
