I should point out I'm in the middle of helping Tim move the 
macintosh source code to VMMaker. As part of this the source code in 
the image is going out into flat files, and of course the logic is 
going in to let one build any variety of VM based on that tree. Once 
the files are in a directory structure then you can use CVS to manage 
it or what ever you wish. First though is getting all the files in a 
manageable form. Hopefully I'll have this done by the end of the week.
