That would be a great idea. I don't mind doing all the cvs remove cvs add, 
it's not that much of a bind, it's the history of the files as they are now 
that would presumably be lost? We'd lose that anyway when moving to an 
external library and the changes are fairly consistent with the QOF tree so 
there is a history, just not in the current tree.

One big advantage from my point of view is that lib/qof could have the same 
Makefile as qof/ itself, making is easier to patch from the QOF tree.

Let me know and I'll fold this change into a commit - just as soon as I'm 
ready. (And yes, I'll test v.v.v.v.v.v.v carefully and I can send you the 
patch if you'd like to test it first!)
