Yes - love the idea of pserver keeping usernames / passwords independant of
the OS, and keeping cvs running as non-root.

But - for external access, we need to encrypt the connection to the server,
so I am hoping there is some method of doing SSH tunnelling (not using the
standard SSH connection method, as per WinCVS).

Unsure if this is possible, or if we should look at using pserver over SSL
connection instead.

Why shouldn't it be? :-) If you absolutely are sure that pserver is better
than ssh for your needs ... then go ahead!
