Because it's not just cvs.exe that loads the protocols, and it's not 
reasonable to expect all executables that use them to live in the same place.

It was never supported to have multiple cvs.exe versions, due to repository 
differences, library differences, registry differences - any of which could 
give you undefined behaviour.
