The Roxen webserver <URL:> has the nifty feature
of "mounting" a CVS tree somewhere into the URI space. This feature
lets you access the current revision of all files I through the web

I don't know how they solve all these problems, but I have used this
CVS mount feature with a local CVS repository and it worked quite
well then (end of 1998/early 1999).
