Errr... the need to interact with *live* CVS repository is reason
behind wanting incremental import, isn't it?
I wonder how hard would be to create a remote helper for CVS, so that
one could treat CVS repository as foreign remote, fetching from it and
pushing to it...
BTW. can you convince your employer to move to more modern version
control system (be it Subversion, Kiln Harmony, Veracity, Bazaar,
Mercurial or Git) rather than rely on system which had last release in
2008 i.e. 4 years ago, doesn't support atomic commits, doesn't support
versioning of whole repository aka. changesets (beside tags), has slow
and complicated branching and even more complicated merging, etc.?
