cvs2cl is going to take quite a while to run when it gets all the log
messages for a project this size from CVS. *NOT* good.

What I want is the following:

after three days out of town (say) there have been several changes
to CVS. I update and want to see what the changes are about.

ChangeLog would be the natural place to see the global log messages.

Or do you have a simple solution (that doesn't take long after the update?)
