   Working with the stable branch:
   I'll presume you already have a tree checked out.  If so, from within
   the working directory you should run the command

     cvs -z3 update -r branch_release-1-6 -Pd
     cvs -z3 update -A -Pd

here's what i do to avoid horrible confusion:

cd .../guile-core
cd ..
mkdir tmp
tar cf - guile-core | (cd tmp ; tar xf -)
mv tmp/guile-core guile-core-1.6
rmdir tmp
cd guile-core-1.6
cvs update -r branch_release-1-6 -Pd

this basically creates a sibling directory guile-core-1.6.  henceforth,
i know which branch i'm in by which directory i'm in, have access to
both instantiated branches, and can update either tree w/ simple "cvs

if this is popular practice, we can add it to HACKING.  such a
convention would also help when we develop side-by-side regression, etc.
