This is true, but now if you wanted to access, say,'s CVS server,
or CVShome's, for that matter, you would have trouble from those machines.
The change I just checked in allows the port to be specified in the CVSROOT
variable (as host/port - e.g.
:pserver:address@hidden/2401:/home2/cvsroot) or, failing that, in
an environment variable CVS_CLIENT_PORT, or, failing that, in the services
file, or, failing that, it defaults to the old 2401.

It had become an universal and almost uncontroverted position in the several
States, that the purposes of society do not require a surrender of all our
rights to our ordinary governors; that there are certain portions of right not
necessary to enable them to carry on an effective government, and which
experience has nevertheless proved they will be constantly encroaching on, if
submitted to them; that there are also certain fences which experience has
proved peculiarly efficacious against wrong, and rarely obstructive of right,
which yet the governing powers have ever shown a disposition to weaken and
remove.  Of the first kind, for instance, is freedom of religion; of the
second, trial by jury, habeas corpus laws, free presses.
