I think that's still overstating the case.  If you run CVS on a network
where you can trust people enough that you're confortable running
telnet or rlogin, then pserver is fine.

I'd agree. I'm not on the network/admin team at my place of employment, but I do admin cvs and other source code control utilities. EVERYONE here uses telnet,rlogin and rsh, so it didn't really make sense for me to tighten up the pserver (over ssh) connections.
