Surely that means the solution is to then:

- Keep CVS for the scripts.
- Update instructions to use BZR.

If CVS is staying as a permanent read-only access utility, then it's not 
an issue.
However, if the plan is to ditch CVS such that it's not even 
automatically updated from BZR, then the instructions should be changed 
ASAP so that people don't start using CVS read-only versions, then find 
they need to move it to BZR as that would just annoy them.

I'd also have said that updating the scripts should have been considered 
as part of the CVS -> BZR move...
