It is not quite what I was thinking, it still needs a central repository
and requires us to admin their passwd file. I looked at the CVS source and
I think a ~10 line patch will give us a single shot setup cost and
inter-group security. Something along the lines of allowing /cvs/*/ to be
a CVSROOT (simple match in allow_root) and then patch the uid switcher to
switch to the UID of the passwd file in the CVS root.
Otherwise whevener they want to add/remove checkin privs we have to go as
root and edit some file, yuky.
