No. You can set up the CVS server and the client side with passwordless access via RSH keys. It's in the SSH docs. That way you never have to enter a password after SSH is set up.

So, one of the "pros" of this approach is that it is more secure than the :pserver 
method, because the passwords are being transmitted over ssh?  One of the "cons" is that 
the password will need to be entered frequently?

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....
