We have a related approach which involves using 2 repositories.  One is
used for every-day working copies, until we come to a release point when
everyone checks their work individually and we run various tests.  At that
point we tag that repository and use cvs export to generate a release
tree.  This release is cvs imported into another repository that is used
for operational software, and isn't writable by the same group of people,
using Unix permissions to enforce that.

You might need to move the operations around a little bit, but the
approach works Ok for us and isn't that hard to manage.  You could even
automate parts of it with a few scripts if so inclined.
