   I'm kind of surprised the no-one has any comment on this. Is development of CVSNT just 
quietly dead? Somebody obviously removed this option for some reason, but there doesn't 
seem to be any paper trail I can find of who did it, why, and what one should do if you 
were using it.

   I'm not trying to be a pest, but pursuing the issue with my own resources has only led 
to dead ends.
