Default CVsup & csup interchangable status files

Suppose I'm going to obtain CVS by "CVsup", and in the future I switch to "csup", or Vice versa. Does status files (/var/db/sup/ or ports) or any others will remain practical & usable ? or I should start from scratch?

You should be using csup. cvsup is in the ports tree, but as far as I know the ONLY difference between the two (as far as updating goes) is that csup is a C rewrite of cvsup (which was written in Modula-3 IIRC) that appeared within the last couple of major FreeBSD versions.
