Well, current code uses custom one everyhone, even there where this is no need
for that and custom crypt code is potentialy less optimized.

Don't know. Never used cvsnt before. Migrated from cvs 1.12.

server logs message that the password is wrong. Can't cite it exactly here
since I saw it being passed to syslog when I was stracing cvsnt.

This patch is just to show how I changed the code. It's not suitable for
merging or anything like that (bigger change would be required here like
wiping out entire crypt part if system crypt() is found and capable).
