modern network (no matter how poor) CVS should run FAST with a SINGLE

Over at the CVSNT (Free/Open Source software and runs on linux etc) we
got so sick of constant requests for 'multi-site' solutions that we did
eventually implement something like this (and we use it to keep our
Sydney and Manchester development teams in sync).  This document
explains it and also why it is usually NOT needed:

There are several other solutions, including:
* rsync or unison
* cvsup

If you are interested in a price for CVSNT on AIX please e-mail

I think CVS 1.12 has some proxy ability, but I'm unsure if it's a 'write
through' proxy or would meet your requirements.
