Merging of changes between different repositories with different file
and directory layouts.  There are likely other advantages as well, but
as I've written before, I still have to look at Arch in order to make
an informed decision.

See above.  That might not be "serious", but with CVS we'll likely
have to setup Arch repositories _in addition_ for merging purposes.

Because RefTeX users with Emacs 21.4 will get the sources using CVS
via Emacs?  I doubt that.
