Logging in doesn't do anything but remember the password that goes along
with the current CVSROOT.  When you check out a working directory, CVS
remembers the CVSROOT you use (in CVS/Root) and uses it for all
subsequent operations in that directory rather than whatever the default
CVSROOT is.  That makes life much simpler for people who work with
multiple repositories since they don't have to keep switching their
CVSROOT around while they work.
