Hmmm. Who remembers the monthly "How do I move the repo to a
new machine?" question? Since one can assume that this question
will bubble up in _any_ scenario where CVS is used, facilitating
client / server mode right from the start does look like A Good
Idea(TM). Although I wouldn't start using :pserver: if I had the
choice (read: would start something new and didn't inherit some
existing configuration) and would instead use some tool which was
_designed_ to correctly and reliably do auth and transport. This
makes the :ext: method the most natural choice. But we had this
discussion already. A few hundred times.
