Maybe we could use admin/reftex/* for such files.  (admin/ is excluded
from the tar ball anyhow, CMIIW.)

When using admin/reftex/*, I don't see that it's much harder than in a
separate repository.

With Richard's okay to a RefTeX-only branch in Emacs CVS, this sounds
like a good solution to me.  The branch would be e.g. "reftex_devel"
and the Emacs trunk would correspond to the current stable RefTeX
branch.  Keeping both in the same CVS repository would also make it
easier to merge bugfixes and administrative changes (update of
copyright notices, etc.) from Emacs trunk to "reftex_devel" much
easier (maybe Miles could do this like he does with the unicode branch
and other branches).

Bye, Reiner.
