Oh ok, now I understand what you want :-)

So the set user id on executing (setuid) or set group id on executing
(setgid) trick
is also not what you what as with that you will have the effective
userid say be root
and then cvs process can switch user.

You may want to look at the WANdisco for CVS product that we sell. It
have a built-in password daemon that will synchronize password from
various auth databases (LDAP/NIS, etc/passwd etc) to the
CVSROOT/passwd. You can then use the "SystemAuth=no" option I talked
about with the passwd file containing  userX:passX:RunAsUser syntax.
So you avoid the manual sync'ing. It will also import group info as
well for access control.
