WinCVS is actually a translator between user's clicks and cvs commands.
It's not its fault, as cvs didn't expose an API. So, I think there was
no other way to provide all cvs functions other than it already is. I
like WinCVS because I can easily view changed files, branches etc and I
don't think it's awful at all. My only complain is that it only runs on
Windows.

Of course I intend to use the libraries. It would be a shame not to use
the APIs exposed.
