Why would you want to do that in client/server mode?

I'd look at a patch.  Mark's right about the documentation and sanity.sh
test cases.  I find it easy enough to avoid the problem you mention by
using:

~    cvs co ccvs
~    mkdir build
~    cd build
~    ../ccvs/configure
~    make

so I'm not likely to want to do a whole lot of extra work for it and
features without documentation and test cases tend to deteriorate so
rapidly that it's almost pointless to add them.  Please see the HACKING
file for more.

If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of
exclusive
property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, which an
individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to himself;
but the
moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession of everyone, and
the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it.  Its peculiar character,
too, is
that no one possesses the less, because every other possesses the whole
of it.
He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without
lessening
mine; as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without
darkening me.
That ideas should freely spread from one to another over the globe, for the
moral and mutual instruction of man, and improvement of his condition,
seems to
have been peculiarly and benevolently designed by nature, when she made
them,
like fire, expansible over all space, without lessening their density at any
point, and like the air in which we breathe, move, and have our physical
being,
incapable of confinement or exclusive appropriation. Inventions then
cannot, in
nature, be a subject of property.
