CVSNT 2.5.01 (Travis) build 2040 (Stable RC1).

Lots of documentation bugs outstanding... the code has been through a 
lot though and seems to be getting into shape.

* extnt now has -P option to specify password
* -ks for 'static' files.  A static file is never considered modified on 
the client (you must commit -f to add a revision).. used for files that 
are generated locally but still need to be stored in the repository.
* Allow '.' as a blank username - for frontends which require the use of 
a username (eg. eclipse) when going via the extnt wrapper.
* Remove some linear processing from the lockserver - noticable on 
directories with large numbers of files in them.
* Add 'server' keyword in :ext: and :ssh: to override CVS_SERVER.
* Update -e automatically edits files during merge (or update, but it's 
less useful for that).  Used in reserved situations to avoid having to 
edit an entire subtree to merge changes.
* Option to ignore -kkv from a client.  Some clients (eclipse!) send 
-kkv for all files they don't specifically have a setting for, which 
overrides cvswrappers.  This makes cvswrappers take precedence.
* Adding *.* (or just *) to cvswrappers defines a catch-all wrapper that 
acts as a default.
* Commit trigger, operates using CVSROOT/shadow, and allows post-commit 
checkouts on a per module/directory/branch basis.
