How about releasing tarballs at stable points in module dev, and sticking 
those up on get-e? The modules are in cvs to facilitate development (and not 
as an alternative distribution method), so its still up to the maintainer to 
release packages (binary or source) for distribution. Assuming the autofoo is 
working properly, it should only require a 'make dist' and an upload. :)
