The main trouble with this is that it is hard to make it compatible.

If people have sandboxes checked out using :server: then they are
obviously using RSH.  At the moment TortoiseCVS assumes that anyone
using :ext: is using SSH.

The trouble is, that CVS_RSH environment variable isn't stored
anywhere (in the CVS/Root file, for example) so you can't mix two
different uses of it.

So I'd prefer it if :server: automatically used RSH...

I had a look at the CVSNT code, and it doesn't look that hard to add
built in rsh :server: support, by stealing the appropriate rcmd code
from CVS.  However, unless anybody who actually cares has the
motivation to do this, it won't happen.

Does that sound like a sensible thing that you would want in CVSNT?
