Without a way to prevent him from checking in, I guarantee you that he will, 
even if we ask him to use anonymous access, and even if he agreed to do so.  
It would only be about a week before he would ignore his agreement and start 
committing without permission.  And then I'll wake up the next morning to 
find the code in an absolute mess, from which even CVS roll-backs will 
probably never fully recover.

We cannot add him as a developer unless CVS access can be throttled.  He is 
extremely self-absorbed, to the exclusion of prudent development behaviour 
when working in a team.  I wouldn't put it past him to be using access to the 
bug database as a ploy to get CVS access.

If it isn't possible, then it isn't possible.  But if there is anything we can 
do to help, Norbert and I would be willing to do so.
