That would simply trade one dependency for another, no?

It depends on what you want to do with the task.  The very first CVS
implementation I've seen was jCVS which was GPLed and thus completely out of
question some three years ago - I never went back to check.

I don't know the code Eclipse or NetBeans use, but my personal requirements
would be:

* must use a license compatible with the one I want to use for my task
  (which my case would rule out (L)GPL but your requirement may be

* must be available without installing the full IDE

* must support local, pserver and ext.

* must support ext with ssh as remote shell.
