Let me explain that I wasn't trying to deny anybody his version
control tool or pressure into migration. The main reason I was asking
the question is because of the reputation of cvsd to have lots of
security issues involved with running the daemon.

The question would have been better phrased: do we need the cvsd
pserver daemon (if only for anonymous access). Given your answers,
I'll take that as a "yes".

Thanks again for your responses.
