PVCS tag does not work with PVCS Dimension

Thanks to Stefan I was able to test the dimenson utilities.
I have tested it on PVCS Dimensions 6.0 and 7.0 on Windows NT against PVCS 
Dimensions Server 6 on Unix database. It generally works, but have some major 
issues, that I think needs to be clarified:
- the "download" utility does not keep proper filename. A 
file "MixesCaseFile.java" will be extracted to local drive with 
filename "mixedcasefile.java". I would set this as a highest priority issue, 
because it is vital for Java compiler to have proper file name. 
- somewhere in doc has to be mentioned, that enviroment variable MCX_SLAVE has 
to be set to point to a login helper. Without the set the "download" utility 
does not login and the task fails.
- for each command from PVCS a GUI window prompts for a password, that I think 
does not match to the Apache Ant strategy of command-line utility. And it is a 
bit annoying ...
- the design of the module is more like to be written for PVCS Dimension 
expert. Tasks like DimensionsFI or DimensionsSCWS reflects to diemnsions 
commands "fi" (fetch item) and "swcs" (set workset) but not to a user who wants 
to use the version manager from a "high-level" perspective. I would suggest to 
redesign the tags to us them like:
<PvcsDimensions>
     <Workset name="MyWorkset@/>
     <Fetch path="/" baseline="MyBeasline">
</PvcsDimensions>
