Paul, your vision of the software world, including client/server,
wrappers, triggers, scripts, libraries, security, etc. seems to be so
unusual that it makes it very difficult to discuss these things with
you. It seems you leave in an entirely different world and therefore
need entirely different tools.

It's not so unusual for people who have done SCM for many years on large and varied projects.

As a suggestion, don't give computers to the users, -- only dumb
terminals connected to a server where all the policies are enforced the
way you like. I mean it, really, that seems to be the only perfect
solution to all of your "problems". Better yet, whatever the users do,
the result should be exactly the same, otherwise some monkey will find a
way to misuse the tools and will waste a few days of his precious time
trying to recover.

There are technical solutions to most of the problems I've encountered so far, certainly all of the ones I've ever brought up in this forum. Hobbling the users for my benefit isn't the answer in the long term.

Sorry for the sarcasm above, -- I'm really sorry you need to live in
such a world and I really don't see how CVS can help you.

As critical as I am about CVS, I really have only 3 or 4 really hot buttons about it. Triggers happen to be one of them. :-)
