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?
