We wanted it for people that didn't want to change all of their workflow
1. Clone repo to local system.
2. Do a CVS checkout of what they wanted from the git-cvsserver (running locally).
3. After CVS commit, they have to do Git push themselves still.
It's mainly testing that it works and writing up a set of instructions
for doing so.
Not proposed at this time: Providing a central git-cvsserver instance,
as users would be forced to update very often I think (but testing this
assumption IS needed).
