"Why should I have to do this!?"

I don't want to do this because I want it to drop the connection when the
sup is done. If it finishes sometime after I've gone to bed but before I
wake up (hopefully), that's wasted time.

This "CVS likes to think about things" is bull<bleep>!

"Why can't the CVS server do a ping now and again itself?"

Besides, ICMP traffic doesn't count as non-idle traffic over my
ppp link.
