You can do that using the username:password syntax...  it's generally not
needed though (plus there are security issues).  You can also use the cvsgui
protocol to handle login for a frontend.

With Win32 it's better to use something like sspi which doesn't usually need a
login.  You should never try to manipulate .cvspass files directly as they're
liable to change without notice (cvsnt for Unix uses .cvs/cvspass, for
example, wheras the Win32 version uses the registry).
