See src/TODO #215 and #231

| 215.  Add reditors and rwatchers commands.
|       - Is an r* command abstraction layer possible here for the commands
|         where this makes sense?  Would it be simpler?  It seems to me the
|         major operational differences lie in the file list construction.
| 231.  The `cvs watch off' command needs an extension which enables users in 
| cvsadmin group to turn watch off for users whose logins and email address may
| not exist anymore.
