i dunno if this is relevfant or not, but yes, I keep "my copy" of the
sources on a linux machine and rely on scripts to zap them over to Windows
when I need to compile&test there -- ditto for irix; for linux I actually
just download the source tarball and compile like anyone else would.

One thing I'm confused about is how to deal with my one directory that
contains sources, compiled objects, and all my related scripts for moving
things around, testing then, etc.  So far I haven't taken the time to organize
them in a way that would support moving the sources to a repository.

Another source of anxiety for me is that I don't know (and would have to learn)
what a good policy would be for maintaining reliability when multiple people
are checking code in and out.  I believe the best way is to have an exhaustive
test suite, but building that would take a huge chunk of time!
