CVS has been around for 20 years - if you have a requirement then the
chances are that 100 others have solved it already.  It's generally
better to ask the question rather than supply a solution and ask if
anyone else agrees.  

Is your question "How do I store two repositories on a server with
different users able to access different repos?"

The simplest way to achieve that is with two --allow_root's and set the
filesystem level ownership and permissions on the files.

If you need to get fancier then use the cvsacls script from the contrib

If you need to get fancier still then use CVSNT (free/GPL just like CVS
and yes it runs on unix/linux/windows/mac) and use the 'chacl' command
with ACLmode=normal.

If your question is a different one then please ask again.

Also: using pserver over the internet for write access is discouraged
since the password is sent in plan text.  With CVS I think your only
other choice is ssh (and you pointed out the problems there).  CVSNT has
a 'sserver' protocol which is an encrypted version of pserver.
