Con: this isn't possible. ssh operating without keys will forcibly invoke username/password login, which will gag the CVS client.

Huh?  I haven't tried without keys in a while but I'm pretty sure my
client still just asks me for the password and lets me type it....

Hmmm. thinking back, that problem occurs on WinCVS. It may be that the command line client behaves correctly. I need to get my lab rebuilt and test these things first.
