For occational personal use, you may use
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:/home/ncvs

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.
