I'm not surprised by their answer :(

It's actually a real problem to solve merge conflicts and other such
things with simultaneous commits on totally de-synchronised systems...
unless you have some central repository queried, which restrains the
felxibility that's brought by CVS ;)

Anyway, their push solution is interesting... even if such things should
be available in several ways, since this problem must already have
discussed in CVS lists / FAQs (or I'm too optimistic ? ;)
