Well, I have other reservations, such as the added load imposed on hyperreal
by people having a lot of people running remote cvs and my original opinion
that it would be more effort to set up remote cvs access than to set
up sup.

It's rather essential actually or this isn't going to work very well since
most people won't have access to the up to date sources.

If you want to give this a try then I'm not too bothered at this stage since
most of the people requesting it will probably end up with full cvs access
in the future since they're all current developers.

I think a much wider audience should ultimately have access to the cvs
repository though and remote cvs will not be a good way to do that.
