Just for my education, by misguided to you mean someone who doesn't realize the default behaviour of cvs (login, CVSROOT, etc...). Or do you mean that it's not a recommend practice to share working directories?

I can see how it would be a problem if two or more people were using a working directory at the same time. But in my case it's pretty much a given that there will only ever be one person using the working directory. It's only used for deploying the system once everyone as checked everything in.

If -d works with update and checkin then I'm set!
