I think the politics of funding a foundation might be better served by
continuing the relatively closed-access CVS repo.

I probably should have said "From an ocassional Openafs code contributor
point of view". I'd just like to use tools that git/mercurial have to
merge my changes up to the latest release.

That being said, a distributed source control system could still be kept
under pretty tight control if the politics demanded it.
