For occational personal use, you may use
The "none" ssh encryption method is available. You may use it by adding
the appropiate lines to ~/.ssh_config
I'd prefer it if people wouldn't overuse this, otherwise I might have to
take it away, as the machine has limited bandwidth/resources. The
repository syncs via cvsup twice a day.

setting CVSREADONLYFS to 1 will prevent locking. This also means you don't
need to give the anoncvs user write access to the lock directory. I
presume this is where most of the anoncvs hogness lies, so this should make
it go quite a bit faster.
