cvs -d:pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot ...

works, so it doesn't seem worth hacking CVS for.

You're also probably causing all kinds of headaches for yourself.  Can you
reoganize things to give each developer a separate workspace on that app server?
Or if you need the central shared space for testing with some application, use 
loginfo hooks to update it automatically when a developer checks in code.  See 
manual on loginfo and "Keeping a checked out copy" for more.

Two wrongs do not make a right.  Three lefts do.
