Patch: Add support for CVS_USER environment variable

In some situations, cvs is run as a user different from the username that should be used for checkins. The enclosed patch adds support for setting the username used for checkins using an environment variable, CVS_USER (much rcs used to pay attention to LOGNAME).

I've seen code equivalent to the following patch floating around the 'net for some time. I don't think it's a complete solution (for one thing, I'd rather have a mechanism that allows the user to be communicated via the server protocol), but it nevertheless helps out in a number of situations.
