Ok, I'll take a stab at it...

How about using the built-in Unix/Linux rwx perms for user/group/others
in the $CVSROOT/CVSROOT directory? Set the dir to belong to a certain
group and set the permissions of the $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/logtags file so
only the owner and users belonging to that group have "x" permissions.
