Oh, but it will Noel -- at least so long as the server system supports
full filesystem ACLs (at least on the filesystem used for $HOME).

With ACLs users can grant read and/or write access to ano other user(s)
to explicit directories in their $CVSROOT.

It might be nice to have a pre-canned little script that can do all the
right things w.r.t. how CVS obeys permissions and ownerships though,
especially if the users are students.....
