This doesn't stop people from pulling the trigger.  It just makes
it annoying and the user will definately figure it out.

I was actually thinking about this on the way home from work( I had
a user delete a branch with this command the other day ).

I would prefer something in the CVSROOT/config file that can
specify users( or none at all ) who are allowed to do dangerous things.
Or alternatively limiting it to a group.  There are a lot of commands
that I would like to restrict the user from running from the command 
line that could fall under this type of solution...
