That's not really going help any unless you're only using it for
read-only access.

If you didn't use cvsd and you didn't use pserver (i.e. if you used SSH,
or some similar client/server tool), then you'd automatically gain the
ability to support as many different repositories on your server as you
could ever possibly imagine needing.  I.e. with SSH the user (perhaps
with the help of a wrapper script or other setup tool) supplies the
repository location to the server and thus any number of repositories
can be handled by one server through one SSH daemon.
