I'm not sure where you get that idea about MacCVS Pro, it's quite

use its own CVS client code, which has advantages (it's much cleaner)
and disadvantages (it can behave a bit differently and lacks some
features of the command-line CVS.

Goliath works fine against Subversion now, though it's read-only of
