  - You can't give "tag" permission without "commit".  You can
    only allow or disallow *all* writes, not selectively.

  - You can give a user write (= commit + tag + delete + ...)
    access to only one directory, but not to one file within a
    directory.  Because of the way CVS works, it's the
    directory's permissions that matter, not those of the
    individual files.
