bah. just file feature requests for them to use ViewCVS. cvsweb is a piece of crap anyways :-)
I've heard you say this before, but I've never had any problems with cvsweb. The display seems fine and I've never missed a feature. If you're being serious and not just plugging your own code, you need to be specific about the problems, and how ViewCVS is better. The problem with had with ViewCVS at python.org was the use of a single file for the script; parsing the whole thing for every run was just too slow. Part of that is the machine, part was configuration, and part was an overly high cost to the convenient installation. The last of those is in your court (possibly fixed by a more recent version; I don't know).
