It's part of the OS, but MS can't make up its mind what it's called...
The code in cvs currently tries to load both.

Not for development, it seems, judging by the feedback I get.  Bugs
for it don't get fixed quickly because they never get reported (for
example command line cvs95 commits have been broken for about 6 months
but someone only now just pointed it out), which implies that people
aren't using it (personally I think anyone would be completely mad to
try to develop under Win9x anyway, especially on a 300mhz notebook!).
