The first changeset will be dependent on what went into CVS. If the CVS
repository was created with one file, then thats what you get.

cscvs cache -b
cscvs totla -i 1 <path to tla tree, that is ready for import, but with
no files>
cscvs totla -c 1:: <path to the same tree>

I've branched cduffy's cscvs--experimental--1.1 into

I've pulled across my usability tweaks. However, it is still very rough
around the edges. The performance is reasonable though. (And the squid
CVS repo has ~ 10K changesets in it).
