Yes, I think 1.11.x should have integrity if reasonably possible.

Suitable for use by a company that can "absolutely guarantee"
that they know exactly what happened to their source code at
every step of the way, not subject to the whim of cowboys.

Unless there is already a plethora of integrity holes in CVS so
there's really no point?  But I'm not aware of any myself (not
that I've looked).  I can remember a very long time ago I used
to have to disable the admin command to stop people from
being able to do things like remove revisions.  I don't know if
use of that command is now able to be restricted.

Where I'm working at the moment, I'm a programmer, not CM,
so I don't have to worry about security risks, the entire
repository can be wiped out by my colleagues any time they
want.  I'm nominally supposed to be using PVCS.  Basically
I use CVS as a precursor to using PVCS, and no-one has
sacked me for doing so.  Yet.  :-)

BFN.  Paul.
