When you say "symlink trick", do you mean that you have a directory
under CVS control, somewhere, anywhere, and the contents of that
directory are a bunch of symlinks which link to the real config file
location?  This way, you have a single place to go (the above
mentioned directory) to 'cvs update' your config files when you have
committed them on a different machine, even though your actual config
files may be spread across various directories including $HOME,
$HOME/.ssh/, etc?
