OK, I'm really really really confused now.  Why the heck does CVS need
changing in any way to use stunnel????

Why not just use stunnel to tunnel RSH through?  Or alternately write a
little wrapper script that looks like 'rsh' from the command-line but
uses stunnel to create the connection and start the server on the other

Why does this have to be made so "difficult"?
