Not CVS comments but "cvs admin".  The CVS manual says:

  admin options

                              ...Some even make it impossible to use CVS until
  you undo the effect!

Anything that requires admin (cvsadmin) privileges is usually pretty dangerous
but, in any case, the onus is on the person making the change to convince
others that it is safe ("I done this many times and never had a problem."),
rather than on me to prove it isn't.
