Oh, yes, that's right, if either the client or the server doesn't support "-c",
the operation won't go through.

IIRC, "cvs editors" will work regardless of who supports multiple edits since
the client will first check to see if the server supports the feature.  In the
end, "cvs edit" just stores some info in CVS/fileattr.  This info is parsed and
outputted by "cvs editors".

I agree.  Any volunteers?

It looks like cvs.texinfo is easy enough to change, but can you tell me how I
can test those changes?
