Er, not exactly. It'll only duplicate all the value of cvsweb or viewcvs
if it's got a nearly as rich interface to versioning. Most web browser
can't even speak basic DAV, let alone show something as nice as what those
tools do. So, it'll still be needed, until all web browser are DAV
versioning tools too. =)
