I have demand to my colleagues, which used every days cvs, if it's 
possible to have many cvsroot with the same local cvs directory. It 
seems not, but it is possible to configure (via a configuration file) 
cvs to launch specific script according to command event. And in that 
script, the cvsroot can be different than defined one.
The way to do must be defined into the cvs manual.

Perhaps that can be solve the problem. I try to find more information on 
the subject.
