Hardly.  CVS does *not* "leak memory like a sieve"; recent versions run
the entire test suite without any memory leaks whatsoever.  And while it
does exit from deeply nested function calls, that does not preclude it's
use as a daemon: the usual design for servers, at least on Unix and
similar systems, is to fork a separate process for each client.
