But if I start some policy of controling individual file permissions
it means some poor sod has to make sure every file checked in has the
right permissions, or a regular process does. Yeuch.

And if they can write the directory to make a lock file/directory they 
can presumably check in new files and who knows what else might sneak

If CVS created it's lock files outside the repositary itself, then
simple access controls on the whole repository would work and that
would be much cleaner. Then I could put each  module directory in the
repository into it's own group and control access that way.
