 Worse yet, any new installation - even of the latest devtools - will
 revert your cvs installation to 1.10. Apple is aware of this, but as of
 my last correspondence sees no reason to change this behavior.

Thank you, I'm glad to know they are aware of the issue and sad to learn
they have no plans to change the situation.

I believe that Apple ships 1.10 because it is the last version that use the old directory wrapper code. I'm pretty sure that if you try to use various Apple tools that want to check in directories as entire binary files, they will break with newer versions of CVS.
