... thereby breaking people with perfectly working configurations
right now.

and, breaking people who want to use cvs in the "normal" way as
specified by all of the existing public documentation, plus manual
pages on who knows how many systems other than NetBSD.

Yes, this sounds like a great way to make using NetBSD in a mixed-os
computing environment, or in a way compatible with existing behaviour,
just a little bit harder.  That's the spirit!  While we're at it,
maybe we should, oh, i dunno, shuffle some of the command line option
names used by our copies of the GNU tools, or something, too.  That'd
be even better!
