[Savannah-hackers-public] pserver with LOTS of repositories

I'm currently having troubles at Savannah giving access to ~5000
repositories via pserver. The reason is that we have to pass 5000
--allow-root parameters to 'cvs pserver', and we exceed the command
line limitations (around 130KB afaics).

Did you already encountered this issue? Is something planned to fix
this issue in CVS?

Existing workarounds:

I saw references to 2 patches from Laurent Julliard back in 2001/2002
to work around this, adding command line switches --allow-root-file
and --allow-root-regexp, but not of them made to the official
distribution eventually.

This: also involve
patching CVS (bye bye automatic distro upgrades :/)

I also wrote this proxying trick:
but that's less efficient than a built-in fix :/

Isn't there a "clean" fix for this? :)
