Possibly; I have thought about this.  In order for it to work, the
create-repo back-end methods would have to become interactive
functions that query for various free parameters, such as the CVS repo
root and module name.

Please send me a heads-up when you can work on the test frame.  I think it
would be prudent for me to lay off hacking on the back-end code until
we have a regression test.  Up to now I've just been removing stuff, but the
next phase (uniform branching primiives, async) is going to be trickier.
