Maintaining a CVS repository is necessary only if you are working
on the code, so your proposal would only affect devlopers, not Joe
User.  Normal users do not maintain copies of the repository and do
not have a frequent need to examine history.  There's always cvsweb
for occasional browsing.

I don't remember anyone saying that.  Obviously, it can be done.  It's
just that nobody wants to, except you.  Guess what:  That means you
get to do it, or stop whining!

If all of the committers chip in $0.15 apiece to buy you a big enough
disk, will you stop wasting our time about this?
