File Locking with CVS

My manager won't let me use CVS with concurrent versions of files.  I need
to have the file locked when I edit the file (cvs edit) so that no one else
can do a 'cvs edit' until I either do a 'cvs unedit' or a 'cvs commit'.
This would be similar to the way SCCS and RCS work.  However, I also need
some of the advanced features that only CVS can provide.  I have looked at
the perl script that is available, however, it looks like it will allow
multiple users to edit a file but only one person can do a commit.  My users
didn't like that idea.  We only want someone to be allowed to do a 'cvs
edit' if the file is not being edited by anyone else.  Please help . . .
