Would you start with a checked-out archive of the main trunk then apply
"update -j" with the 1.30.x branch, or use a checked-out archive of the
1.30.x branch and apply "update -j" with the main trunk? We would want
the results to be in the main trunk.

Will the command tell us which files get the CVS markers, so we can fix
them up before other people start downloading (hopefully)? What
happens to binary files?
