Coming up with the "F" list can be more than just ``ls -R
/home/ncvs/src/contrib/global'' as older versions of global might have
had files that weren't part of the the last version.  Thus I'd have had
to keep the commit message (or go find it in the archive, which would be
some effort), to get the real list of files to revive.

As you've just shown, this can be a real PITA.

Huh?  Do what??  I fully understand how to remove, add, and revive files
in the repo.
