Well, for me it involves keeping an entire multisite install under version 
control, bringing updated packages in from drupal.org in a vendor branch and 
merging across to a local branch.

But that's too painful with CVS, from past experience. Which probably meens 
we should forget about 'best practice' until we're off sarge :/

ok. That works for me.

FWIW in Drupal-5 modules/ is left best left alone, all the contrib modules 
we use or any modules we write should go into

but then the other modules are there...are you saying propstar needed to be 
directly in modules/ to halt the breakage?
