We looked at VCS::Cvs for inclusion into SandWeb, and realized
the same thing, so we wrote our own abstracted Perl CVS class
( SandWeb::Repository::cvs ).

If you want to check it out, I'd reccommend getting the CVS
version - 

SandWeb itself is getting ready to enter beta, the APIs for
things like and are frozen.

It also depends on SandWeb::Shell, since that class is the
point at which everything interfaces with the Unix shell. 

I originally wrote Repository::cvs to make it's own calls
to the shell, it would be really easy to just remove the
dependency on that class and make cvs->Shell() just do
a direct call.

SandWeb::Repository is a class that lets us abstract different
version control systems from SandWeb, doesn't depend
on it, it just gives us a standard API ( which is almost
identical to's API, since we only support CVS so far :) ).
