If it ain't borken :-).  Speed is rarely an issue since the CVS master
server is fast, and most of the time only a few files are copied.

For other intersted parties I got OK from John Polstra to put his
script online with std. BSD license so it can now be found at
http://people.freebsd.org/~simon/scripts/Fixtags .

In case anyone is interested I put the script I use for repo-copies at
FreeBSD.org online as
http://people.freebsd.org/~simon/scripts/cvs_repo_copy .  The script
probably need to be adjusted to local config and use at your own risk
etc - but it hasn't done anything bad for me yet :-).
