If you're just concerned with execute permission, CVS copies the execute
permissions from the repository file so all you have to do is set the
permissions on the repository files correctly and all will be well. 
(Coincidentally, CVS also sets the execute permissions on the repository
file the very first time it's checked in.)  If that's not sufficient,
you'll just have to live with chmod, give them a script or some other
tool to do it for them, or fix the PreservePermissions code in CVS.
