   That does sound like it will be useful.  Excellent.

   Are you sure this is correct?  I get:

~ $ cvs -d :pserver:cvs at clozure.com:/usr/local/publiccvs login
(Logging in to cvs at clozure.com)
CVS password:
~ $ cvs -d :pserver:cvs at clozure.com:/usr/local/publiccvs co website
cvs server: Updating website
cvs server: failed to create lock directory for 
`/usr/local/publiccvs/website' 
(/usr/local/publiccvs/website/#cvs.lock): Permission denied
cvs server: failed to obtain dir lock in repository 
`/usr/local/publiccvs/website'
cvs [server aborted]: read lock failed - giving up

   I'll worry about that when I have something to show.  Grin.
