CVS's network protocol terrifies me.  Where we're still using CVS, we just
put the repositories directly in AFS and use AFS ACLs to control access.
It's a bit slower, but it works.

You have to play some games with the LockDir configuration parameter if
you want to provide read-only access via AFS, but it's doable.  (We've
never needed this.)

Subversion is a lot nicer.
