Well, yes, the client will not operate *directly* on the repository, but 
it will through the server. And I though a CVSNT server might also 
require a CVSNT client for communication, but that does not seem to be 
the case.

Any you're right, the ",v" files will be hidden from external access in 
our installation.

What about my second question, about the renaming feature status?
