Actually I have only one "odd-ball" machine and the rest work with
default "cvs".  But even so, it was convincing enough..

... exactly what I wanted to avoid.

whoa, that's ugly.

Indeed, it's not.  My implementation is a dirty hack that only allows
per-directory alternate for CVS_SERVER.  But we could have a .cvsconfig
file that had more options that override ~/.cvsrc.  Flexibility is
good.  Look at ssh, for instance--you can set some defaults, but you can
also set different parameters for each host, in ~/.ssh/config.  I'm sure
that some guy at some point thought that it wouldn't be useful, but I
actually find it is ;-)

Thanks, here it is (attached).  It's diff from rsh-client.c rev. 1.6. 
Tested on Linux only and it appears to be working fine; the function
that starts the remote shell is sort of duplicated for OS/2, but I can't
test my changes there.
