Two thoughts.
1) Some of this seems very much what you targets itla at - has that
changed (are you now encouraging project-specific features for tla
inclusion [which I consider buggoo integration to be, for all that its
cool and essential])

2) some projects like mozilla do the all-in-one approach which cvs and
now subversion encourage. It's a freaking mess. I think that the use
case of configs for library & build assembly is the primary use case,
and a awesomely valuable one. So - targeting a cvs-like all-in-one tree
approach is actually (IMO) a bad thing.
