How likely is it that we would need to take the major step of backing out
a new version?  Since we're adding third-party software, it's known to
work (though on other platforms) at that point, and if it's broken,
there's usually a patch that follows from the vendor.

The reason I ask is that our CVS repository is getting pretty large.

leaf:/home/justin> du -sh /cvs
765M    /cvs

Is that an accurate measure?
