"-ko" in tortoise cvs

When managing third party libraries, I like to create a repository in house (for C++, it includes headers and compiled libs). Pragmatic Version Control Using CVS also recommends this approach.

One of the annoying thing you may encounter is the keyword expansion feature of CVS (I do not like it, so do the authors of the above cvs book). It means when importing/adding files, you have to specify "-ko"(keyword off) in command line. For tortoise CVS, you need to:

1. Select all the files you want to add;
2. Right Click, find "keywords" option, set it to "disabled(0)".
