Good luck with it and congrats if it works out.  Maybe
you can post something to the FAQ?  If so, be sure to
include a BIG caveat for things that can go wrong and
other stuff with this solution (eg CVSROOT will not be
used, umask should be set to 022 at least to prevent
multiple people modifying the same file at the same
time (oh, but that'll cause problems with the CVS
subdirectory and its files), people should specify
files to "cvs ci" to ensure that only their files get
checked in, ...).
