Thanks for the cvs info. I did manage to get your checkout to work finally.
My prior attempts where thwarted because I had it in my head that I had
to setup a tunnel manually to get it to work. So I expected it to not work
and didn't notice a stupid mistake when setting up the CVS_RSH variable.

I am sure I will manage to incorporate more generality as I rewrite httpap
to use what I have done so far. Ideally, the best you could hope for would
be a generic application proxy that only requires information about the 
protocol. I don't see how you can avoid having your application proxy 
the application protocol.
