In fact, I'm only tracking changes introduced in Emacs. But not those
introduced after my last merge for a specific file (these will have to
be manually re-checked).

Changes in the cedet trunk should be automatically merged when I merge
the branch.

There's no easy solution.

On one hand, files in Emacs where introduced with modification wrt the
cedet CVS, so some of them are hard to track.

On the other hand, people won't be able to contribute all the fixes into
cedet instead of emacs and expect emacs tu pull from cedet; not until I
finish the file-rename branch.

All this, added with my lack of elisp skill, knowledge on cedet
internals and knowledge on what has been changed and why, make the task
a tough one.
