CVS Replication Advice Sought From Experienced Folk

I seek a good but inexpensive CVS replication solution, Active-Active
in WANdisco terminology, for a set of sites less than or equal to ten,
probably more like three to begin with.  This is both for myself
individually and for a small company, and in both cases, price is a
major concern.  By Active-Active, I mean I need the ability to commit
to any repository copy and sync them later when I have connectivity to
other sites.  It's ok for there to be one "master" site to which all
syncronizations go, but it is not ok to require all commits to be made
directly to one master site.  In other words, given three sites A, B,
and C, it is not ok to require all commits to go to A, but it is ok to
make B sync with A and C sync with A, provided that one can commit to
A, B, or C and then sync later.  Major extra points for
synchronization of CVSROOT files like modules.  Also major points for
cross-platform compatibility--e.g., A is Unix, B and C are Windows.
Minor extra points if the system works with both CVS and CVSNT,
particularly if with both, though since I've not yet used CVSNT, I
don't know the limitations of this idea theoretically.  Any
replication system I get will be used to develop both commercially
sold/contracted and open-source software.  We already have a number of
projects in plain CVS which I would import into the new replication

add me to any marketing email lists.

I am aware of WANdisco's CVS Replicator, but just judging from the way
their site is set up, it looks pricy.  I am aware that other solutions
exist, but I don't know them by name, feature set, or web site yet.

Input welcome.
