Can you also send this through as a context diff?  "cvs diff -c"?

What are everyone else's thoughts on this one?

One of the reasons why the admin scripts live only in CVSROOT is for 
security, and if you've chroot jailed CVSNT it can only see it's own 'root'.

I suppose if we move this property to /etc/cvsnt/PServer then you'd need 
root priv to set it anyway - but on windows it's nowhere near as 
straightforward (and you can't really chroot jail on windows either).

All up I'm thinking this sounds a trifle dangerous.
