Don't confuse cvsup as the tool to deploy the FreeBSD base system with
the cvs tool which is still live and kicking in a standard world. It is

svn is not a nice rcs by any standard, lacking both the distribution and
check summing features of git and the simplicity and relative robustness
of CVS, so it is not really an option for ezjails moderate requirements.
