RE: visual client

I tried to use WinCVS but gave up and use CVS from the command line.

The thing I could never figure out is how to configure it to know about
more then one cvs repository. Its docs don't help and the GUI helps less.
Now I'm sure it can be done, but life too short. On the command line this
is trivia to do.

You must design a user model that is implemented in the GUI as Greg said.
