  And port-forwarding isn't likely to help, either.  ;(  The remote
CVS protocol can be used directly over a socket, but the standard CVS
client isn't written to work that way with authentication.  It really
wants to talk to another process via a pipe (such as rsh or ssh); I
have no idea how feasible this is on the Mac (because of my ignorance,
not because I don't think the Mac can do it).
