My problem with that was that it was (potentially) run as a different
user each time, resulting in permission errors (since the users don't
have g+w in their umask). I just wrote a short setuid program that
executed the same command.

I also seem to recall that it gets called once for each file, which
leads to bunches of "waiting for xxx's lock on yyy" messages when a
single cvs commit ends up committing multiple files (since multiple
copies of it are running at once).
