Maybe the script to pipe to an invocation of `cvs server' would be
short enough to make it reasonable to mimic a case-insensitve client
in sanity.sh, but I'm not sure I have the time for that.

The other idea is to work out what needs to happen in sanity.sh on
the server versus what has to happen on the client and actually have
the manipulations done using $CVS_RSH commands rather than locally.

This would then allow heterogeneous tests to be run between some
platforms configurations.

To be honest, I think this kind of split configuration will be needed if
we want to get the PAM-basd authentication methods really tested
correctly.

I think I actually set that up once by hacking hardcoded values for CVS_SERVER & CVSROOT_DIRNAME into sanity.sh and commenting out a few tests that relied on a local, known, CVSROOT. Given that, and the test case of different client and server executables provided by my recent overhaul of PROG/SPROG, it should be easily doable on a reusable basis, at least for most of the tests.
