Oh! So there will be nothing under the subdomains anymore? If so I would 
need to revise the export-patches script to export the cvs repository 
to  a different directory.

Did you like my idea of making the DocumentRoot of

Since the current hints will be moved and replaced by hints in new 
format as and when they are submitted. Current bookmarks won't work anyways.
