It's possible, but I don't think a setuid script would preserve the
correct user names in the log messages.  I'd probably switch to pserver,
rsh, or ssh (if you're sensitive about security) as an access method and
make sure the repository wasn't on a shared drive (at least with the
same path).  Read up on remote repositories in the Cederqvist:
