Yes.  CVSROOT for display purposes - the server already knows what its 
physical location is so it's not really necessary to store it there.

If you really need it there's $REAL_CVSROOT, but be careful not to allow 
the user to see this at any point otherwise it'll both confuse them and 
give away information about the server.

The environment setting is just old code.. it should probably be the 
repository name too but there's precedent for it to be incorrect ($USER 
in the environment is wrong if you're using an aliased user or have set 
RunAsUser) so I'm not too worried.
