SSH, even within the VPN, for one.  Kerberized rsh for another.  Even
just plain old rsh is better than pserver if you do really trust your
VPN and all those on it, and the configuration of internal DNS, etc.

I'm not sure what that has to do with anything....  CVS is happy to use
any external remote execution tool so long as it provides a nice clean
connection and is relatively command-line compatible with rsh (or can be
made so), such as ssh.
