Extremely poorly, I would suspect.  It's probably best to use a script
to recreate things as they should be from a cvs export of the real
config files.

As an aside, rather than use CVS you could use RCS instead.  The
trouble with either scheme is that, for the case of multiple sysadmins
(and sometimes for one ;), it relies on people to play the game.  And
they won't, through laziness.
