I use `cvschroot', part of one of the two cvsutils packages (one by
Alexandre Oliva and one by Pavel Roskin). I've used it more than a
few times. So, this does happen.

If you've never looked at cvsutils (or cvs-utils, the other one :-),
it is worth doing. They both provide useful functionality that
complements cvs, and I use utilities from both packages every day.

It's always been my hope that subversion, eventually, would eliminate
the need for add-on packages, especially packages that exist just to
fill in little holes which cvs has left.

One of those projects is on red-bean.com. The other is on
