Someone reported to me that they have a CD-Rom drive with a copy of a
repository on it that they wanted to make available to lots of people by
just using a remote machines CD-Rom device as the repository. My
suggested work around was to burn the 700MB of space on a server and just
make the repository available again... :-)

Larry suggested just passing the -R flag thru the client/server
interface as a gloal switch, but I have not had time to get back to it
and see what other complications that might cause. 

It also bothers me that this kind of feature could be used by someone
that wanted to checkout trees from a normal repository and not leave a
record of it in the history file...
