In cvs 1.9 'cvs log' as an internal command was introduced rather than
using the external RCS 'rlog' program (which is why 'cvs rlog' had been
given that name originally). 

When rCVS client/server was introduced, there was a desire to use 'cvs
rlog' as a remote command. However, a number of releases had to go by
allowing 'cvs rlog' to still work because of things like GNU Emacs 19.34
distributing a version of VC that used it. So, for a time 'cvs rlog'
was marked as 'deprecated' rather than changed to its new purpose.

As you have seen, in cvs 1.10.7 'cvs log' and 'cvs rlog' were still
synonymous and 'rlog' was only deprecated to allow for its use as a
remote command in a future release.

In cvs 1.11.1 'cvs rlog' became a client/server command different from
the 'cvs log' command.

I am not aware of anything that does this. You would need to write such
a command yourself.

        Good luck,
