Patch: Make cvs commit honor -q/-Q

cvs commit/checkin doesn't honor -q or -Q, and is extraordinarily chatty, which can be annoying in scripts that run cvs commit (with the -m option for the log message).

This goes against the documentation, which reads:

     -Q   Causes the command to be really quiet; the command will
          generate output only for serious problems.

     -q   Causes the command to be somewhat quiet;  informational
          messages,  such  as  reports  of recursion through sub-
          directories, are suppressed.

Redirecting stdout and stderr to /dev/null can serve as a bandaid, but that throws out legitimate errors too.

Enclosed is my patch to make it honor -q/-Q.  With -q, it now prints:

Checking in foo.txt
Checking in bar.txt

and with -Q it prints nothing if there are no errors.
