   Because of this change, "cvs up" now shows ps-print.el and
   cl-loaddefs.el as modified, which might cause trouble if, say,
   ps-print.el is ever modified in the repository.

brief experiments w/ chmod +w; touch; rewrite (random mod plus undo
plus save) -- all do not result in "cvs up" displaying "M filename".
this is w/ CVSREAD=1 and cvs --version 1.11.22.  ymmv.

but regardless of cvs version quirks, let's look at the nature of the
changes: autoload processing changes a specified region; programmers
should not change that region manually.  i think possible conflict (as
evidenced by a "C" line on "cvs up") is unlikely.  any such conflict
would be good to know about.
