I think that the cvs ls -l <modulename> is OK as witnessed by this
C:\Documents and Settings\bosse>cvs ls -l CVSMailer

It is possible to see files as opposed to directories and we have the
HEAD revision and -kb flag too. Should be possible to use as the basis
for a browser.
Of course automatic recursing would save time but there is a drawback
on the top level (.) and that is the potential for thousands of files
coming back which would slow down the response. But that could of
course be handled by the client by using the recurse flag selectively.
Do you think there is a chance that this will be able to make it into
the main CVS code?
