	Well, since I have to manually add directories in the cvs source tree, I
can simply not add the directories.  Visual C++ creates a 'Release' and/or
'Debug' directory, depending on what type of compile, which you'd NOT want
in the source tree..  It'll just mean I'll get ?'s on those directories, so
not a problem there..

	That's what I got out of it as well..

	Yep, exactly what I wanted to know..  Hopefully tonight there will be a
bunch-o-checkins in the Win32 directory..
