Yup.  hydra has `xmessage', mundook does not, for instance (last time I 
checked, anyway).  This method should work if ssh is used (via the `ext' 
access method) to connect to the CVS server on a machine with `xmessage' 
installed.  I don't know what happens if the `pserver' method is used 
instead --- perhaps what Erwan is seeing.

Erwan, if you can think of how to extend/improve the remote CVS support, 
please feel free to do so --- I just hacked it so it works for me, with my 
remote setup.  If it doesn't work for yours, but you can see how to fix it, 
please do so.  The script that does the checking and interaction is 
`check.pl' in `/home/mercury1/repository/CVSROOT' (I think checking out the 
`CVSROOT' module gets you what you want).
