Well given that it is a (not very well written) shell script, probably not.

As I said this was a quick hack to get something working for me.

But this has at least proved the concept that it can be done, and what I have
can be vastly improved upon.

Simply replicating changes made to a single directory (recursivly) is not
difficult. But if you want to follow all branches as CVS branches thats
a bit more difficult, but not impossible.
