If you're worried about the (incredibly minor and almost invisible on
modern hardware) costs of encryption and such with SSH then why not use
RSH for local connections?  Even your server won't suffer a lot from
burning extra CPU cycles if it's decently well endowed (unless maybe
dozens of people all try ot check out very large modules at once, but
they won't be doing that very often, will they!).

In any case this is mostly a firewall-type question, not related to CVS.

Please DO NOT EVER send HTML, rich text, or otherwise stylized e-mail,
especially not to me or to any public mailing list.  Not all mail
readers will recognize such formats.  HTML in particular is a potential
security threat and many firewalls filter it entirely -- especially
since CERT and Microsoft recently anounced a very major flaw in the HTML
rendering engine used in all Microsoft products.  Please send all your
messages as plain text only.
