actually some time ago I was thinking about integrating the java cvs 
client from Netbeans (javacvs.netbeans.org) with the cvs target.
Is such functionality really required? the code is release under Sun 
Public Licence, is it compatible with the apache licence?

there's a few drawbacks to it though. not all commands are supported, 
mainly the ones that modify read-write/read-only access rights. (edit, 
unedit command.)
