Yeah, I was thinking that rsyncing the $CVSROOT/CVSROOT directory first
(before transferring anything else) and then again at the end should
tell you if something got committed during the transfer by noticing if
the history file gets updated.  If it has changed, rerun the sync of the
non-CVSROOT dirs until the history file is finally quiescent.
