Thanks for the reply, Mike. You're right, that does sound like a long way to go 
to get there...I'd love to instead use an OSX-native CVS client, but haven't 
been able to find a good one that has an easy GUI and will allow me to use the 
Macros I have set up in WinCVS. I used MacCVS for a while back in the day, but 
I haven't been able to dig up a recent version of it to download and try out 
with Lion. I will give Eclipse a look.
