I may be reading you wrong here, but I'm not sure you need enough flexibility
in CVS if you trust the developers: put it up with wide open permissions
to the developers, and have a clear policy which it is up for the people
to enforce on themselves. That's the way the Python development is organized,
and it seems to be going great.
