I am not a CVSNT developer and I have no clue as to what depends on
what except by experience over the years...

Yes, and it is based on an experiment I did a week ago to see the
effects of having multiple cvsnt versions in different folders and
trying to start cvs in these folders. Before adding the empty file the
cvs.exe start failed in some of the versions. But after adding it to
the cvs software folders each version did start and used its local
dll:s too. I looked at this via SysInternal:s Process Explorer.

Thought it worth a shot in this case also, but maybe the file should
be named cvsnt.cpl.local or simcpl.cpl.local instead?
Apparently it controls how Windows loads a program dependencies.
