FWIW, Michal's other post gave a link to his pirate project

I checked it out and noted that he is running a newer version of
ViewCVS than SourceForge (0.9.2 vs 0.8 -- main visible diff is an
explicit 'text' download link) and appears to be running against the
actual repository rather than a 'backup up to 24 hours old'.   (I
could get 2 hour old revision).  In a short and inadequate test, it
seems to be as least as snappy as SF.
