Oh, that's right.  You're coding the general solution for this,
not solving the local Perl-to-CVS problem.

Which explains why that 'cvs' guy is patching Perl faster than Chip did.

CVSROOT should be a moot point once the working copy is checked
out.  It's saved in one of the ./CVS/* files.  It's only an issue
when checking out a working copy in someone's name.

Unless you're just hacking around the way CVS does business.

I suppose you could do this with a single repository and write
a one liner to forcibly turn Jarkko into Sarathy and back again.
Never thought of that.  Probably not as tricky as it sounds.
