To a certain extent.  They can certainly interoperate in a working
directory when using client/server mode.  Local mode is a bit trickier
since WinCVS uses native DOS paths and Cygwin uses it's own mapped file
system paths, but it could probably be made to work with a bit of
effort.  But, as I've said before, there's no reason to do so -- WinCVS
comes with a fine command-line CVS (cvs.exe), so there's no reason to
use Cygwin CVS too.

It's either spectacular, unbelievable success, or crushing, hopeless
defeat!  There is no middle ground! -- Calvin
