File sharing

We're in the process of converting from another source control system to CVS and one of the things our previous system did that CVS does not is file sharing.  I was just curious if anyone has a solution to this.  I've thought of a couple of things, but don't want to do too much investigation if it's something that definitely won't work.  The ideas I had were:
1.  Develop a system of watches on certain files so that whenever a change is comitted it is automatically comitted to the other shared locations.
2.  Use symbolic links on our CVS server (a UNIX box)
Both involve special setup for shared files, but that's OK as long as changes committed to one place are reflected in all other shared locations.  I'm sure there are issues I'm not considering, but if anyone has implemented a way to share files in a CVS repository, I would love to hear how you did it.
