I usually cannot remember the help syntax for CVS (cvs -H foo), and end
up doing 'cvs foo -h'.

This works OK for most CVS commands, but one notable exception is
"import".  Why is "import" handled differently?

-- David

$ cvs co -h
co: invalid option -- h
  cvs checkout [-ANPRcflnps] [-r rev] [-D date] [-d dir]

$ cvs import -h
cvs import: No CVSROOT specified!  Please use the `-d' option
cvs [import aborted]: or set the CVSROOT environment variable.

$ cvs -d /home/ncvs import -h
import: invalid option -- h
Usage: cvs import [-d] [-k subst] [-I ign] [-m msg] [-b branch]
