By far the most convenient setup for your developers would be to have a
CVS client on each machine.  You may not have to compile six more exes:
if any of the machines are upwardly binary compatible, you should be
able to build a client on the oldest one and copy it to the others. 
Similarly, since the server does the bulk of the work and we're very
careful to keep the client/server protocol compatible from release to
release, you can upgrade the server in the future without worrying about
upgrading all of the clients at the same time.
