Sure, I can (and have) made the scripts. But not having to use them
at all would be good, especially for CVS converts who aren't used to
this kind of behavior. The main kind of obfuscation/transformation
that I had thought of was actually gzipping, ie, something useful in
its own way and not just a random rot13 or whatnot. I imagine that
idea has come up before as a way to save checkout space. It would be
interesting if it had any noticeable performance impact.

None taken. Not so much about being lazy as minimizing the overall
learning curve and annoyance factor by being less counter-intuitive.
