True - I had forgotten about that.  I guess I've never really used that 
option as it is only available in Tortoise (I mostly use WinCVS).  I don't 
believe that WinCVS supports it in the interface, does it?  The Eclipse 
integration definitely does not.  I guess it is really more of an issue for 
the client tools to support the options better.
