What is "normal CVS" and "local CVS"? I can probably guess
but I'd rather not.

I hate to disagree with you, Larry, but looking at commit.c it seems that
the standard client behaviour is a single prompt per commit:

    if (current_parsed_root->isremote)
         * We do this once, not once for each directory as in normal CVS.
         * The protocol is designed this way.  This is a feature.
        if (use_editor)
            do_editor (".", &saved_message, (char *)NULL, find_args.ulist);

So, it appears that the prompt-per-directory behaviour only applies on local
CVS systems.
