lintian and Vcs-CVS: fields

Hi all!

$ tail -1 /usr/src/contrib/hosted/tg/deb/mksh/debian/source.lintian-overrides           
mksh source: vcs-field-uses-not-recommended-uri-format vcs-cvs :ext:_anoncvs@anoncvs.mirbsd.org:/cvs contrib/hosted/tg/deb/mksh

Sorry, but pserver must die. (By the way, Vcs-CVS: fields are often
not handled correctly, e.g. by packages.qa.debian.org, because CVS
doesn’t have URIs but two components ($CVSROOT and module path) that
are separated (in the Vcs-CVS: field) by {a |white}space. Someone may
want to look into it.)

Please add :ext:[user[:pass]@]server:[port]/path to the list of
allowed/preferable CVSROOT formats, too.
