This is a nice thought, but I don't like relying on commands we don't
have control of being called with the correct name.  Maybe this calls
for a more general solution, like a CVS_RSH_ARGS environment variable
that takes contents like the *info templates (via format_cmdline())?
We could default the contents of CVS_RSH_ARGS to this alternate form
based, perhaps, on the fact that remsh was found at configure time and
the command has the name remsh, but I like the general form and the
available override, given that we have the infrastructure in place to
make it not much more complicated.

Cheers,

Derek
