Re: CVS Pragma - extensibility for CVS

This is such a GREAT idea!!!  Could it PLEASE become part of the 
mainstream?!?  I was planning to add subcommands to CVS, but dread having to 
change the client, since I have no clue how to rebuild it like I can the 
server side.  With this feature I can just add scripts.  

For example, when someone imports a new module the group ownership is always 
that user's default group defined in /etc/passwd.  In order for the user to 
change the group, he has to call CM to have them "chgrp" the tree.  Wouldn't 
"cvs pragma chgrp me:diffgroup foo" be so much nicer?  Or how about "cvs 
pragma ls -la foo"??  Or even "cvs pragma setfacl -whatever foo"?
