After a little help from Marc, I got cvsupd working for my own cvs
repositories (not apache stuff).

I've got a main repository at the end of a 28.8 modem and it was taking
me a good 2+ hours to do a "cvs -z update -Pd" on ~1.2mb of html in ~17,000
files.  With cvsupd it looks (from initial tests) like this will be reduced
to 5-10 minutes. woo hoo!.

cvsup saves bandwidth big time.
