Maybe you could check whether the server supports "rls" and if so send 
that instead. Of course that doesn't guarantee it accepts the same 
options... the manual doesn't appear to be updated for that yet. Anyone 
who has got that installed yet and could supply details?

BTW: I just updated the Advantages page with everything I could think of 
off the top of my head that I felt was still missing w.r.t the latest 
stable CVSNT release. Might be a good idea if somebody took a quick look 
at it as I'm not entirely up-to-date with the current featureset of the 
various GNU CVS releases myself...
