1. Check out boost CVS version to one directory
2. Check out spirit CVS version to another directory
3. Do a recursive diff on the directories to identify added and removed files
4. Remove all files except those in CVS subdirectories from boost working
5. Remove CVS subdirectories from spirit working directory
6. Move the remaining files from the spirit working directory to the boost one
6. "cvs remove" all the removed files, and "cvs add" all the added files, in
the boost working directory
7. "cvs update" on the boost working directory
8. label the new version in boost CVS

Of course, you still have to avoid check-ins to both repositories.
