   I had delayed looking at the new generated-by-Perl IXIN stuff because
   of CVS antipathy.  Now theres no more excuse.  :-D

It seems i spoke too soon.  The "svn co" command consumed all disk space
and memory on my computer before exiting failurefully.  As a workaround,
i installed git-svn and did:

 $ mkdir texinfo
 $ cd texinfo
 $ git svn init svn://
 $ git svn fetch

which required about seven hours and five manual restarts to complete
(interruptions were due to connection timeout), w/ a 1.3GiB footprint.

So, now i see a bunch of directories many of them named "texinfo".
Which one contains the IXIN hacking?
