But here again you are talking about storage in the repository, which
is not the OP's concern. His concern is with the creation of
temporary copies of sensitive files in the working copy. Since CVS
doesn't have the pristine copies Subversion has, it may be seen as
being better than Subversion on this issue. However, when updating, I
don't know what CVS does; it may also create temporary files as
Subversion does, and might thus be no better.
