I agree.  Regardless of what the intent of Stephen's and Randy's
trees, it reads like these are _the_ cgl and _the_ dcl trees.

I was thinking that it would be a pretty nice thing to make new
repositories available for patch set projects that aim to provide
some portion of the cgl requirements, but after looking further
into bkbits.net... man! that was easy!

(It seems like bkbits.net would be worried about somebody DOS'ing
them since it is so easy to get a tree.  It's very cool!)
