The subject of your email implies you have an inkling.

There's a way in SSH2 (I've heard the same can be done
in SSH) to specify one and only one executable per key
to be executed.  Since I haven't done it in a while,
you'll have to consult another source (eg O'Reilly's
SSH book) for the details.

Once you have SSH set up, it's easy:
1. Users execute CVS the same way except their CVSROOT
will specify using ssh.
2. Users who try to use ssh directly will wind up
executing the cvs server.
