and requires a much higher level of sophistication or tool in
order to convert CVS's summary into... a summary!

A summary "suitable for easy processing by other utilities". I still don't think reducing a four-case case statement in your shell script to a single line justifies fixing the line length of CVS output until the end of time. I'd like to see CVS using gettext or the like for multiple language support someday and getting fixed line length to translate into several languages would be a bear.
