Well, BorCVS currently captures all output (STDOUT) from the CVS
subprocess and displays it in it's own window. Theoretically it would be
possible to feed in some data (passwords, etc) via STDIN, but I don't know
any way to determine _when_ an appcation is waiting form STDIN input, so
it won't work in practice. If anybody has an idea how this could work,
please tell me. Also, the WinCVS way would be nice to be implemented, so
everyone's invited to do so ;-)
