This is an open source proeject - we publish the source and are allways
willing to accept modifications.  I look forward to receiving yours on
the cvsnt-dev list.

I agree completely with Tony - the original behaviour of CVS was
duplicitous - edit was supposed to keep your teammates advised and yet
it couldn't if it was offline.  An alternative would be a "silent edit"
which could be a parameter to edit or a separate comment.  In either
case (depending on the server config) the server will insist on a "real
commit" and/or "real edit" when you are back online.

Again - if you'd like to make the modification and post it to cvsnt-dev
that would be seriously considered.
