Huh?  CVS does that now.  I access dozens and dozens of different
servers on an almost daily basis and I've never changed anything after
I've done the initial checkout!

Here's one I just checked out moments ago:

        $ cat CVS/Root

That's a bit trickier.....  :-)

It's also something that you should be able to change without
invalidating your working dirctories.  Personally I almost always just
use SSH (for non-annonymous read-only repos like above, that is), so
I've never found any reason to change it.  I certainly wouldn't want to
accept non-SSH access to anyone's remote repo, and I don't mind using
SSH on my private network either....  It could probably even be argued
that the default should be "ssh".
