I'm just guessing here, but did they try WinCVS quite awhile ago (e.g. 
~1 year or more)?  The first time I tried it there were *ahem* some 
stability issues (I had to use the unstable version because I was using 
sspi, which wasn't on the stable release at the time).  Since then they 
have stabilized it and it seems robust, but I haven't used it much.
