It has the advantage of not having the user at the cvs server adding/rewriting files, but only the user that the pserver runs as (which might take some weight of the poor admins burden).
Then you have no accountability in your CVS repository.  None.
True, but to us, there's actually only one developer, person X. It doesn't matter who does what to the repository - there is a very limited number of developers who can access the server via SSH. And we don't use reserved checkouts, editors/watchers. There is no interest of "who did what", only "what's been developed".

You cannot have security without accountability.  Integrity alone is useless.

You're probably right, though I'm not sure what you mean by accountability (I'm not a native english speaker).
