Ok, I checked in a change to stable and feature that causes the
parse_cvsroot() function to always be used for root validation.  The
change also caches the parsed root when possible.  The change included
Alexander's new tests.

I did not try to change things to save a canonical root in CVS/Root,
nor will I soon, though I will not object to such a change and would
be likely to commit a complete patch if one were submitted.
