So, *is* the --allow-root option evaluated for the "cvs server"
case?  I did a very quick test lately trying to restrict access
to one of two repos but still was allowed to access both of them.
Since I'm not absolutely positive that I did everything right,
could somebody please verify or deny that it's worth to try this
combo (":ext:" plus "--allow-root")?

BTW:  This would be one reason less pushing people towards the
:pserver: method.  And being ortoghonal(sp?) cannot be wrong. :>
