There's no limit in CVS itself.  If you're using pserver, then there are
limits imposed by [x]inted, sometime severe ones, but they can be worked
around by having [x]inetd run a script that then runs CVS with the
necessary arguments.  Even then, there usually is some limit on command
line length that will come into play eventually.  CVS 1.12 adds the
--allow-root-regexp option which can significantly reduce the required
command line length.
