It would be nice if the effect of "cvs -z9" could also be
accomplished by setting an appropriate environment variable.

You might be right, though I might vote for it being encoded in the CVSROOT so that it could be attached easily to a sandbox.

   :<remote_method>:<user>:[<password>]@<host>[:[port]]/<cvsroot>

Hrm.  I'm not sure where I'd encode that.  Maybe:

:<remote_method>:[:z<compression_level>:]<user>:[<password>]@<host>[:[port]]/<cvsroot>

Please send patches!

As a workaround, you might consider `cvs -z9' as a line in your `~/.cvsrc'. There's always `alias cvs="cvs -z9"' too.
