Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

My mistake. From the nongnu.org version of CVS, server.c:

/* The Authentication Protocol.  Client sends:
     *   <REPOSITORY>\n
     *   <USERNAME>\n
     *   <PASSWORD>\n
     * Server uses above information to authenticate, then sends
     *   I LOVE YOU\n
     * if it grants access, else
     *   I HATE YOU\n
     * if it denies access (and it exits if denying).

This is from the void function pserver_authenticate_connection().

As Tony said: it's part of the basic protocol and cannot be changed
without breaking every existing CVS server in the world (both CVSNT and
nongnu.org CVS).
