Andy, now you are just being silly.

Think about it:

#1. You change a file.
#2. You cvs commit it.
#3. Diff gets sent to the server.
#4. Server then checks out a copy of the file and changes it and checks it
in again.
#5. File on local disk is different than file on server.
#6. User who did the commit does a cvs update.

At #4, you will get two commit messages for every commmit.

At #6, when the user does a cvs update, they are going to get a bunch of
conflicts because the lines changed from the version on the server to the
version on the client.
