How? It's just an option. If you don't want to use it don't use it -
no functionality has been removed.

I'm not sure what to make of that comment. You really think that
someone putting enormous amounts of time and money into the development
of cvsnt isn't going to affect the future development?
There's barely a feature that's been added that hasn't had some
discussion behind the scenes (and I still have veto over what goes in...
if I object strongly it doesn't happen).
That doesn't mean I'm going to cripple the future sales of the
commercial side simply because of a bit of wording and about the 5 lines
of code that comprise the -x option.
