Only if the remote site is set up for it.  My idea is to let you
replicate any CVS server to which you have access, whether rsync
is set up or not.  I'm not saying my way is good or efficient, or
for daily use, only that it might come in handy if you get some 
notice that some CVS server you depend on is about to disappear, 
without any real channce of setting up rsync, cvsup, or anything 
else, because, maybe the administrative staff just got laid off.

Maybe it's just my  paranoid system administrator background 
showing again.  CVS is great, but sometimes it makes me a little 
nervous in that it has a tendency to pack a lot of eggs into 
one basket.  So I think about how you might rescue those eggs from 
a precariously perched basket, that's all.
