Just in a bit of defense of WinCVS, AFAIK it does show it's commands
(thought perhaps not all), and if you install Tcl you get a CLI in it.
And the CVS executable itself I think is the "original" code, very few
CVS clients have actually reimplemented the client side.

And CVS has almost all of its logic on the serve side, so you seldom
screw up stuff.

Well, my 2 cents. I have used WinCVS quite a lot earlier, not recent
builds though.

cheers, Göran
