Well, that might be correct. However I found that AnonCVS takes quite a 
lot longer than sup would. Not that that many data would be transferred,
but the waiting time until something happens is quite severe. And if
you have to pay for connection time (like here in Germany), you may
find it more expensive than sup.

(Hmm, time to find a working flat rate provider...)
