Oh, I know - I just mentioned it because of the warning from cvs if you
try to commit while your own copy has not been synced with the remote
copy. (Why exactly this makes it worth mentioning I'm no longer sure,
but it made sense at the time.) I tend to be paranoid about making
absolutely certain that my copy and the remote one are in sync except
for the change I'm looking at, and...

Right - as Diego has pointed out, I was apparently misremembering
policy. Will commit in a moment.

side of it.
