Given the recent security breaches in Networks Associates and Symantec
antivirus products, I'm hardly convinced that an antivrus will do any
good to a "server" which has/is behind a firewall and which the only
network service is CVSNT.

I guess 'rlog' and 'log' have basically the same performance
characteristics, and if they really ever used 'log' it means they
use(d) a shadow sandbox so I'm still more puzzled why "cvs update"
wouldn't be good enough...
