   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.$$ -cf - .)|(cd inetutils; tar xf -)
     # or whatever equivalent command
     rm -rf tmp.$$

That will munge the CVS/* files, and you won't be able to do a `cvs
up' in the tree without restoring them.  Which makes it a PITA since
you need to keep track in what module you are working in.
