Many of the CVSNT server commands (like "cvs init") now do modify this file
on your behalf - but our overriding design rule is to follow the standards
for a platform. So on windows things are configured with a control panel
(just like all windows servers) and on Linux it is configured with a text
file in /etc (just like all linux servers). We're extending this all the
time - linux will continue to be command line based, but windows will start
to get a few more graphical tools (with CVSNT 2.5.04).
EVS is different - it is going to be configured by a web browser regardless
of the platform. See evscm.org for more info.
