Think of a repository as a modules + CVSROOT. The loginfo,
commitinfo, etc. files in CVSROOT enforce certain policies for
your development environment.

If you want to use the same policies before transferring the code to
the spin-off, then creating a new  module is just fine. If you have
to change the policies, then you should create a new repository.

When you transfer the code module, remember to transfer any scripts
from CVSROOT that are important to the code. If you think that there
will be a lot of CVSROOT scripts to transfer, then it might be easier to
create a separate repository from the start.
