In theory you could load the audit library yourself and do that - in 
cvsnt it's even a C interface so should be easy enough from delphi.

You could access the data with a combination of rlog and rdiff.. 
although not ideal as it involves text parsing it has the advantage you 
could even do it against an old cvs server.
