What does it mean to say "cvs watch on" across a sandbox?  Does that
really mean that the actions of one user (the guy who did the cvs watch
on) can affect everyone else's sandboxes (now everyone has to type cvs
edit to edit those files that cvs watch on was just run on)?

Looks like the format is:

  _<token>=<optional value>;_<another token>=<another optional value>

What's the significance of something being watched ("_watched=;") but
that doesn't have any watchers?
