Correct.  Various kludges have been suggested on this list, and
maybe even used successfully -- but they're all kludges.
Fundamentally, CVS expects there to be one repo, and it expects
users to be connected to it when they do CVS operations.

Disconnected operation is limited to the most trivial kind: check
out a sandbox; take the laptop home (for e.g.) but don't do any
CVS operations; bring the laptop back to work, plug it into the
network, and commit.

Bitkeeper ( claims to do this.  Not free,
unfortunately, unless you're willing to live with all your commit
logs being published.  I've never used it, so can't vouch for it,
but it might be worth a look.
