I haven't tried it myself but someone suggested running inetd & pserver
from your own account.  I believe the implication was that inetd will run
from your account as long as you don't request ports already in use by
the system.  You can then maintain your own CVS passwd file and thus
multiple CVS userids even though they will really be running under your
userid.  This does mean that if your hoster already runs an
implementation of cvspserver you may have problems - you will have to
request a nonstandard port and that gets somewhat complicated with
current CVS clients.  I sent a patch to the list sometime in the last few
months which fixes this if you want to hassle with it.  Using it involves
recompiling the clients which will hit your machine (but only once...).
