A CVSNT server can be compared to a database engine. I wouldn't expect someone to produce a suite of reporting tools that read Oracle data files directly and produced reports, I'd expect them to use SQL queries. Similarly I wouldn't expect someone to produce a suite of reporting tools that read CVSNT files directly; I'd expect them to use a working copy. Anything else may lead to differences between the reports and what everyone else sees, surely?
