Sounds like it.  I have no idea what the FreeBSD folks have done to CVS,
but it appears that they have at least added a global option.  To my
knowledge, they've made no attempt to get input from the CVS developers
or share their changes with us.

It certainly would prevent confusion -- you may want to suggest it
(strongly!) to whoever is working on CVS for FreeBSD.  You may also want
to suggest that they communicate a bit better with the CVS developers.
