Ok, I will bite. Sure, it could be done but why would you want to do this?
I like separating out the "get a new module" concept from the
"pull in changes from the server" concept. Why create a "super command"
that does it all? If a fetch subcommand was added, would we not want
to remove the checkout, update, and switch methods? They would just
be a crutch there to help CVS users that did not understand the power
of fetch, right?
