Why? When you'd need to get autogenerated files you'd do

  mkdir tmp.$$
  cvs -d :ext:cvs.sv.gnu.org/cvsroot/inetutils co autofiles
  cp -r tmp.$$/* inetutils
  # Or: (tar -C tmp.$$ -cf - .)|(cd inetutils; tar xf -)
  # or whatever equivalent command
  rm -rf tmp.$$

(this could be a script provided with the inetutils module itself)
Commiting them back to CVS is also not difficult.

Oh, no! Branches are awful.

That's possible too.
