Or if you're using command-line CVS, wrap "cvs tag" in a shell
script and have people use that.

Or put the file in the user's sandbox.  The script should:
  - Write the info about the tag to the log file
  - Commit the log file
  - Create the tag, *including* tagging the log file itself

  - The log file is revision controlled
  - It's available to people who use CVS client/server, without
    giving them any other access to the server machine

  - The script has to be smart enough to cope with merge
    conflicts in the log file.  The challenge is to avoid writing
    duplicate log entries for the same tagging operation, which
    is what would happen if the script took the naive approach of
    just aborting in case of conflict.
