There is no timeout for an established connection (although CVS does use
TCP/IP KEEPALIVEs to try to detect broken idle connections).  A CVS
server only supports a single connection -- [x]inetd is responsible for
starting a new server for each connection.  Please note that the CVS
client/server protocol was designed assuming a new connection for each
user-level command, so you probably can't use connection pooling in the
general case (and the standard server may not always work right even in
the cases where you could, theoretically, use connection pooling, since
it's never really been tested that way).
