Not hence.  You can use file ownership and permissions to control who
can read and write each directory in the repository.  A person needs
read permission on the files and the directory to check it out and needs
write permission on the directory to commit changes or add new files. 
If you want to allow read-only access to some directories, you'll have
to use LockDir= in CVSROOT/config to put the lock files in some world
writable directory tree rather than in the repository.  If your system
supports access control lists (ACLs), you can use them for even finer

Have inetd run a shell script instead of CVS.  The shell script can then
exec CVS with as many arguments as you'd like.
