Was I? I thought Paul Richards was?

SOCKS isn't to secure the connection (not really) its to get me past my
firewall. Since the shell connection for CVS is only used to launch the CVS
server, ssh doesn't provide much protection.

Good question! I'm just sorting out the procedures needed to do all this stuff.
If CVS is ready to go, I should be ready to set it up in a couple of days.
I won't be able to use it until I SOCKSify it, though, which may take a little
longer. For those who don't know, I should point out that SOCKSification takes
place entirely in the client, it won't affect hyperreal.
