Apart from the notification, surely this can be done at the back-end level
with file permissions (ideally ACLs even 8) ?

In its simplest form CVS is just a front-end to RCS which is just a local
file management thing, and affected by file permissions. I know that a
lot of CVS setups do away with people actually having user accounts (and
distinct UIDs) on the server, but surely people trusted to alter lumps of
the kernel can be allowed a shell (or at least a UID) on some central box?
