Bill and David,

Many thanks for your help with this.

After some fiddling around, I think I'm going rely mainly on agent
forwarding now that I've understood it some more.  (I didn't quite
understand how it worked until last night.)  I'm going to create a
separate "sshcvs" user locally that can only exec "cvs server" when the
key is used.
