cvsweb does all those exact same things (: I dont know viewcvs but I am 
guessing they are fairly the same. One thing that wasnt mentined as being in 
ViewCVS but is in cvsweb, is that cvsweb can do diffs between versions of 
files either on revision numbers, dates or tags. And can view modules based 
on tag/branch. (:
