Er, sorry, I think I wasn't clear. I was actually thinking about how
the emacs build system tars up its lisp directory and dumps it into
the target area. (Not a very good practice, but oh well.) The build
system "knows" about RCS directories and removes them from the
destination area, and it could be taught to "know" about CVS and SVN
directories as well... but that won't work if the SVN directory name
could be different.
That's the kind of thing I'm talking about. Again, I'm not sure
whether it's compelling. I hadn't thought about emacs vc-mode as a
separate problem case.
