Provides CVS functionality in library form

This libcvs is meant to facilitate writing tools around CVS. It does this by providing libraries which programmers can access directly in their tools. The current focus of the project are libraries which use the cvsclient protocol to talk to a cvs server and are targeted at the development of client applications. Libraries which understand the RCS file format and provide fast server side access are a future possibility. An ObjectiveC version is also underway.
