Forgive me if I still don't understand what you're asking. Why doesn't
'cvs co [-c|-s]' give you what you need? Do you want more than just the
module names (eg. files)?

AFAIK (correct me if I'm wrong) that magic string is your
trivially-encrypted password for the cvs server. CVS typically validates
that with $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/passwd, thought this may be different if you
use some other security layer...
