Sourceforge and keep their multiple projects securely from one
another with CVS just fine.  I think if they can then you probably can

As you point out there are very robust and widely used scripts that
assist in this (though strictly speaking they are not required for the
result you've requested).  Also CVSNT (GPL/free, unix/linux/etc just
like CVS) also has additional security tools (like access control lists,
chroot jail etc) if you need them.

Making up faults in a product that are no better handled by the
suggested alternative, then claiming that they are the reason you need
to spend time and money to migrate from one to another is just lazy.
There may be good reasons for you to migrate from CVS to
ClearCase/PVCS/TeamSystem/SVN/Git/etc but this is not it.
