CVS has drawbacks, or lacks some feature, but this is not what of them. I would like to understand how you came to this conclusion. Are you using CVS in anonymous mode, or do you authenticate your users ?

Create different groups (at the OS level) for your different projects, and make the repository directories owned by those groups. We even use the so-called POSIX extended ACLs for complicated setup (one group needs to have read-only access (check out / update / export only), while another group needs read/write (commit).
