Yes, each user's $CVSROOT could be within their $HOME with SSH too.

You don't need user-editable password files with SSH -- they don't exist
there anyway!

If you need ACLs (and you maybe do to get all the functionality you
desire), then why don't you choose a platform which supports them!?!?!?!?

Use ACLs if you need them.  They're user-controllable.  Choose a
suitable platform that implements all of the functionality you need.
Don't base your platform choice on irrelevant factors!
