There's a simple answer: I don't mind removing bison generated files, if we 
agree (on kde-core-devel) to make bison a build requirement. The other 
generated files in khtml are done with some quite non standard tools (or by 
hand editing flex output to make it able to handle Unicode), so there I see 
no other way then to leave the generated files in CVS.
