Yes, according to the email archives I have found, I could run as my cvs
test user rather than LOCAL_SYSTEM or whatever the sshd account is by
default, but it would limit me to logging into the machine via ssh as
only the cvs test user, something else I am trying to avoid.  I could
also, possibly, set up the generic SSHD on one port and the cvs test
SSHD on another.  So far I am avoiding this because according to the
mailing lists and the one time I tried it, there are some permissions
issues in the DLLs that I am both reluctant to dive into with my level
of Windows expertise.

"My father often told me,
We have servants and machines
in order that our will may be carried out
beyond the reach of our own arms.
Machines are more powerful than servants
and more obedient and less rebellious,
but machines have no judgement
and will not remonstrate with us
when our will is foolish,
and will not disobey us
when our will is evil.
In times and places where people despise the gods,
those most in need of servants have machines,
or choose servants who will behave like machines.
I believe this will continue
until the gods stop laughing."
