Make it possible to create objects directly from the
CVS repository. Ideally, a programmer could specify a
source that resides in an IFS file so that files from
the repository could be used directly.

I think the best way to support this is through one of
the command exit programs. The change exit could
scrape the directory name from a command line if the
command is prompted.

Another, and perhaps the better way, would be to look
at the source file specified on a create command and
then update it from its corresponding CVS file. A
prompt would allow the programmer to bypass the source
update. An environment variable could be used to
bypass the prompt.
