Tweaking the ownership/perms of the RCS ,v files will probably not
help, because CVS operates by copying and renaming.  Instead, we need
a line in CVSROOT/commitinfo, something like this:

   emacs/src   /path/to/specialized/protection-script.sh

(It starts at the beginning of the line, of course, I'm just indenting
for clarity here.)  Then 'protection-script.sh' would look like this:

   # The first argument is always the absolute path to the repository
   # subdir.  Shift past that to get to the individual files.

   for FNAME in $@; do
     if [ ${FNAME} = regex.c -o ${FNAME} = regex.h ]; then
       echo "Cannot commit to ${FNAME} in this repository."
       exit 1

   exit 0

Hope this helps,
