CVS via ftp

Having a local cvs repository at my own machine is all well and good for many purposes. But sometimes, I want to be able to check out stuff from my repository when I am not at home and my computer is not turned on.

I have a lot of space at an external web hosting facility. The only way I can access it is via ftp.

So I am thinking: Is there a way to make cvs place the repository at this remote machine using ftp transfers? Does other versioning systems such as subversion offer this functionality?

If not, am I right in saying that it wouldn't be very hard to implement this? After all, instead of the files having names such as /whatever/CVS/some_module/foobar.c (or whatever), it would now be (or something like that). The functionality of CVS is the same, it is just the actual file handling that is different.

Maybe it can be done invisibly if some sort of "map/mount ftp as drive/directory" tool existed.
