Log author field with :local:

Hello guys,

Recently we had an issue with CVS: we had to access the repository using the
:local: protocol, and we realised that cvs would record the author field of
the history with the username that is currently logged to the OS. I tried to
find a way (we're using 1.11.1p1) to specify the username, but I couldn't
find a cvs command syntax to achieve that. So I changed the cvs source code
and recompiled it so that it now gets a user variable called "USER" and
records the logs with that name when using the :local: protocol.

I wonder if there's any other way to achieve what I did without recompiling
CVS. If not, I would like to know if such feature could be added to future
CVS versions.
