well I wasn't aware of it before I started coding, but yeah I looked at it, it 
looked a 
little bit more complicated/'batched up' than I wanted (ie: you've got other 
that don't relate to acl.) Also I wanted something simple, wasn't sure how easy 
to use 
your solution was. 

Anyways, I'm not against your patches (ie: if they are the standard acl for 
cvs, I'd be
more than happy to use them), but I had a couple of questions:

        1) is your acl mechanism backwards compatible with existing cvs 
        2) how do you use your acl?

#1 is key for me - I need something where I don't need to download a new client 
everyone who wants to use ACL. #2 is pretty important too - I want something 
one file that I can check and see at a glance who has access to what. If #1 and 
#2 holds
for your patch, then like I said I'd be more than happy to use it.
