CVS (1.11.1p1) doesn't seem to allow add/remove to be made against a read-only
repository. This behavior makes it inconvenient to work with such repositories
(I mean public CVS repositories of open-source projects). In particular,
locally rm'ed files re-appear as soon as update is invoked, and contents of
locally added files don't appear in the 'cvs diff'.

At first glance it seems that adding/removing files is a local activity
similar to other changes and thus shouldn't require write access to the
repository until the time the changes are committed. Is the idea fundamentally
broken, just difficult to implement, or what?
