I just got home from a week long campout and haven't read beyond this 
message yet so I apologize if other stuff is written about this later. 
I've had no problems with cvs so far, and I don't know what the cost of 
moving is, but it is nice to be under fdo in regards to source control, 
and I find cvs easy to use.  I don't mind the logins and as far as the 
-d strings it should be fine once you create your local repository, then 
you never have to deal with them.  Anyways, I'll keep reading.
