After reviewing what others have said on this, I'm inclined to agree
with this lazy-import approach.

Agreed.  Except that I think that we should "cvs remove" everything
that has been transferred to Git (once it is clear that the transfer
was successful).  (Because there should not be two possible sources
for the guile-core files, that can only confuse people.)

I think I can go ahead with this at any time, can't I?  In other
words: ticking this option won't automatically do anything bad to the
existing CVS infrastructure, will it?
