I take it you mean the _client_ side of CVS as a library? Or are you
talking about serving up CVS functionality from an embedded server?

The first is quite useful - it would make it far more easy to wrap it in
good GUI tools (instead of the somersaults that the various GUI clients
have to go through today to parse the output).

Also, providing hooks to provide standard client-side SCC APIs (like
Microsoft's) also makes it more easy to integrate into IDEs.
Unfortunately, there isn't much of a standard for these things outside
the Micro$$$$ world..

Good idea..
