OK.  Should I ever again see a (require 'foo-bar) in an elisp file on the
CVS server, what is the rule for finding foo-bar.el?  Will it typically be
in the .../lisp/emacs-lisp directory?  Or is there some sort of 'find'
command I can use to locate it?  Hopefully I wouldn't have to search
through the entire archive manually.
