Just a few comments about CVS (I should have done this before you did
the changes, so sorry about that):

o   oldPerl/Nevan_FE_BE/ (ignoring the typo :) is not only my work.
    Bryan and David did a lot of changes, so maybe just call it
    oldPerl/frontend_backend, FE_BE or something like that?

o   OLD/ is Perl too, so maybe it should go to oldPerl/ ? I have no idea how
    to name it though. Perhaps just oldPerl/backend/ ?
    With oldPerl/frontend_backend/ above, it would be clearer what it is.

o   OLD/profiles is ancient and should be removed since we now have profiles/.
    Also, OLD/contrib would be better in contrib/ perhaps?

o   And how about unpacking ALFS-0.0.7.tar.bz2 and newALFS.tar.bz2 ?
    They are not very useful being in CVS, packed like that.

These are only the suggestions of course, and confusing everybody was NOT
my intention. :)

Great work Jason.
