It doesn't work as a daemon.  You either have to use it as a pserver with
inetd (or whatever flavor of inetd) or you have to use rsh/ssh/etc to
connect and execute the cvs command remotely.

I think it's quite odd that it works like this, but I think the reasons are
that cvs was never meant to serve remote requests.  It was meant to be a
local tool on a local filesystem.  It just happens that rsh/ssh allow you to
remotely execute any unix shell command in a remote fashion.  It's worked
well like this forever and the designers have never felt the need to change
this behavior.
