Next version of ViewCVS will have this feature. Many people have asked for
it, so it'll go in. Of course, cvsweb isn't maintained software, so who
knows if/when you'd ever get it.
[ I'll be doing exactly what Jim said: rev=HEAD in the URL ]
Brian refuses to use ViewCVS because "it introduces another language into
SourceCast, so it makes it hard for us to maintain." Fine. It also means
that he'll never see any improvements since cvsweb is effectively
unmaintained (and unmaintable, if you ever try to change it; and I'm not
talking just because it is Perl... it is horrible software).
Oh, was that a jab at Brian for making a senseless decision? :-)
