Writing profiles is a pain in the ass. They're wonderful to
have afterwards, though. So here's a script to convert shell
commands into a profile:

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at highos.com:/home/cvsroot co entling

"entling" is a play on halfling, obviously. As such, entling
does not cater to nalfs and probably won't, unless an nalfs
user takes the time to make it work.

This isn't a finished script, it's not anywhere near "stable",
and hasn't even been tested yet actually (except by eye). So
regardless of how nifty the output looks, don't trust it. Make
sure you look over the profile carefully before running it,
and don't blame me if it melts your machine.

That said, if you have an affinity towards halfling, this might
be your cup of tea. Combined with something like lfscmd, writing
profiles is almost tolerable.

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at highos.com:/home/cvsroot co lfscmd

Write the list if you find a bug. Bugs are pretty much
guaranteed at this point. There is no documentation yet.
Perhaps more work to come. For now, however, sleep.
