CVS and Excel

I have a colleague who wants to derive some code development
tracking metrics for our CVS hosted products.  This needs to
be done using a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet in a relatively
automatic way.  What he would like is to be able to execute
CVS commands, or use some DLL or ActiveX type functionality
from a Excel VBA to get information back to the spreadsheet.

Has anyone done this? 

(For the record, he is currently checking out to a UNIX area,
then building an Oracle database with metrics derived from that
area.  The Oracle database is then queried using ODBC from Excel
VBA.  There has to be a better way!)
