Yes, I was thinking a little about this.  Since it's the team that decides
whether to default to "cvs edit -c" and "cvs ci -c", this setting really should
be within CVSROOT/config (as, say, EditCheck=True).  Doing so would do away with
"cvs edit -c" and "cvs ci -c".  "cvs edit -f" should still be kept to override
the serialisation when necessary, though.
