Unpacked, so that we can diff between revisions, etc.

This is what I have in mind: (other suggestions welcome)


Adding a new version will require a 'cvs add', and the Recipe for
2.5.1 will have a different revision history than 2.5.0 (the first
commit message for 2.5.1 can be something like "upgrade from 2.5.0" to
indicate where to look for past history). I think sometimes we may
need to update old versions of recipes (strict version dependencies,
things like that). Or could this be done with branching (on a
per-recipe basis)?

Yes, I hope so too! :)
